Some, if not all voip providers, offer the same "hide caller id" services as you'd expect from landlines. Sometimes this option is easily accessible through your online account login page at the voip provider site)

Your VOIP provider is the same, no matter where you are, because it uses the internet as a transport method, not your mobile carrier.
Only if your VOIP provider or your internet provider has problems (blocking VOIP traffic for whatever reasons) will the calls fail. But usually there are no restrictions. Check both, by reading up user reviews/complaints, on both your internet provider (both at home and your mobile carrier), and the VOIP provider.

An ISP's job is not to track anything at all!  Unless you're under FBI investigation.
You know, privacy and all?
