Citizenship - Time spent Outside Australia

Hello all, I've searched through the forum and on the immi site with no luck finding my question.

We have applied for our Citizenship in Dec 2018 , whilst holding full PR ,how long is the maximum you can spend outside Australia whilst you're application is being processed ? This is due to family reasons

I was thinking it would be no more than 3 months in a 1 year period very much the same as when on PR it's no more than 3 months in 1 year and no more than a year in 4 years. I know also you are to inform then when outside the countries when on Holidays on such. But found nothing in writing.
