GV pre-approval and travel restrictions

hi everyone, i have some questions about my GV application and would like to seek advice from you all. thank you very much for helping.

I applied for GV in Nov 2021 and yesterday I was informed that my application status is now “Candidatura Aceite” but haven’t got the biometrics scheduled yet.

  1. For “Situação do Requerimento: Candidatura Aceite” does it mean my GV is pre-approved?

  2. with this status, can i now move to Portugal and live there even before I have my biometrics taken?

  3. During my stay in Portugal if i want to travel to a non-Schengen country, can I return to Portugal (not as a tourist which is subject to the 90-day max restriction)?

  4. Ditto, if I want to travel to a Schengen country instead, can I do so? Or they won’t allow me in because i have stayed in the Schengen for over 90 days in a 180-day period.

thanks a lot to all of you.
