You will be able to use your Google Voice number while you are traveling abroad. You will not be able to link the number to your foreign carrier, but you can use the built-in VoIP client in the Google Voice app, and on the web. You should install the app, and make sure the VoIP works prior to leaving the USA. You may be unable to install the app once you leave, with an error that Google Voice is not supported in your country.
Do not let a 6 month period go by without placing a call, or sending a text message. If you do, Google will consider the number to have been abandoned and may reclaim the number.
