You can travel for less than 6 months without problems, especially if for a valid business reason which you can prove if need be.
The "problems" would start after any absences of 6 months or more. For any absence of one year or more, I recommend you apply for a Reentry Permit on Form I-131.
Any extended periods of travel might make obtaining the removal of your conditional status problematic, unless logically explained and justified. Also, any absences out of the country will be counted against your residency and physical presence for naturalization purposes.
Yes you can travel outside the country. Normally travel up to 6 months is not a problem. From 6 months to a year they can start asking questions. If you travel over a year there is is a rebuttable presumption that you abandoned your residence, get a travel permit before you travel.
