Yes you can use logmein https://secure.logmein.com/

After installing and setting things up you will just need your browser wherever you are.

Yes, you need a remote access web-based application such as LogMeIn, Teamviewer or ScreenConnect. You have to download the app on the host machine and should be able to connect in through the internet.
