With the internet it’s a lot easier to do work from home than it used to be. But it depends on what your research will be, what resources you will need, etc. You may want to inquire with the school, see if they have any grad students who have had to commute long distances.

I’m working on my Ed.D. at a school 1.5 hours away from home, and it’s working out fine for me. I even contemplated (but decided against it in the end) working with a professor over 1000 miles away!

I suggest that even during your candidacy for MA, you start your search for a specific research topic. Once you figure out what you want to focus on, then you can start applying for your PhD and transfer to the PhD program once you complete your MA. Determine what are the requirements of your school and work towards achieving them. It is not necessary to stay near school, but I suggest that you complete all requirements for your PhD school (no matter where it is located).
