IF this is just for collaborative development , where sharing will be only limited to source control items  you can go for installing a TFS Proxy at the remote site, and configure it to pull updates from server as needed.

When you say Branch, do you mean a Code Branch , i.e. a certain portion of code uder a team project source control, or do you mean a secondary TFS server ?
if you mean the latter , you can indeed install a secondary TFS application server using the "Application tier only " setup option.
This can mean , having multiple servers pointing to the same Data tier server, or setting up NLB between AT servers.
All such scenarios and more are available in the TFS installation guide document , the section titled "Choosing an installation Scenario"
