Remote Desktop and Remote Terminal

Hello this is not one but three questions.
Please read it out to the end.
Assuming I have machines M1(office) and M2(home) located 1 km away. Both have sshd running
Q1. I am working on M1 on GUI. I lock it and go to M2 and want to see what I was doing on M1 remotely. Now I dont want to unlock M1 which is what happens when I use x0vncserver and all such stuff. I want the M1 screen to appear locked in office but should be able to use it in home.

Q2. Similar question for a tty of terminal. Suppose in my office I was working on a Virtual console or a tty and I have locked the room.
Now I come home and want to control that virtual console. Please tell me what can be done.I know the screen command but please suggest something else.

Q3. Suppose I run a program in terminal in such a way that it continues running even after I log out of that terminal. e.g. some game (It is possible for that program to continue running even after the terminal is closed). Now I fire up another terminal on the same machine (or connect remotely to that machine) and want to switch to that task. Please tell me how is that done.

I will be very thankful to whoever answers this question.

Thank you.
