I will sometimes travel for up to 3 months without using my printer. What can be done, if anything, to prevent the ink from clogging the print head?
Should I remove the ink tanks & tape the vents? What about the print head?

The main thing you want to do to make sure that the print head is capped is to turn the printer off via the power button before unplugging it from the power outlet. If you unplug the power without turning it off first, the print head remains uncapped which can speed up the process of wear and tear on the print head. It is also recommended to take out the inks and store them in an airtight container like a Ziploc bag.
