While I use BOINC, do I always need to be connected to the Internet?

No. The internet connection is only required to download the WU (Working Unit) and to send the results of the completed ones. When the processing of a Working Unit is terminated, and you are not connected to the Internet, BOINC temporarily saves the processing results on your hard disk, and when a new Internet connection is available, it automatically sends the results, and delete the data that it had stored on the Hard Disk. For downloading and uploading the various WUs, it is sufficient to have an internet connection of at least 2 Megabits.
