Can this printer be setup as a remote printer when accessing my computer at work via RDP?
I use to have an HP Series II compatible printer before.

Rather unhelpfully HP's main list of RDP compatible printers is offline (probably being updated) but is normally here.  Even though this is a Brother AIO the HP document explains how printer drivers work over remote connections.

The 7840W is a Host-Based printer - that is it doesn't use internal processing but delegates print/scan etc processing to the client PC's CPU - it uses a printer language termed GDI .  Often this means that over a remote connection some functions are unavailable but basic printing (not scanning) should still be supported.  Brother list the printer as compatible with Citrix Presentation Server  4.0/ 4.5, Citrix XenApp 5.0, and Citrix XenDesktop 2.0/ 3.0/ 4.0.
