I know that you can have a break of being apart during those 12 months but I don't what they class as an acceptable amount of time to be living apart. Prob best to call immigration to see if they have a guideline for the amount of time you can be apart and still count it in the 12 months. 3 months may be too long however they may accept 3 months if you can prove you continued your relationship during that time with emails, calls etc

Best to get the info straight from them. I suggest calling at least 3 times and asking the same question. They are notorious for not giving consistent answers.

Also if you don't get clear answers from immigration I would wait another 3 months so you have the full 12 months. It's alot of money to gamble on.

check this link

Check this link. It has some useful information about the 12 month defacto requirement.

Australian Immigration Fact Sheet 35. One-Year Relationship Requirement

This is a copy of one the question on that page that i think is relevant to you.

""My job in Australia does not allow me to travel to my partner's country to live there for extended periods. We have been in a relationship for 12 months but lived together for only eight months. Will I be eligible to sponsor my partner to Australia?""

You may be eligible. It is recognised that it is possible for the parties to be physically apart for periods of time, due to work or travel commitments, yet committed to a shared life.

In assessing a relationship, a number of factors other than periods of physical cohabitation are taken into account.

You should have no problems opening a joint savings account, regardless of whether or not he is a PR - we did it while on WHV, no issues had. Why won't the bank accept your application? As long as you are both in the country to sign papers at the time it shouldn't be an issue at all.
