 Make sure that you keep paying those mortgage bills while you are gone.  And how will your tenant pay you? 

Consider checking with your bank about automatic payment options.  And consider talking to a real estate agent about helping you through the process.

No. So long as you continue to make the required mortgage payments, it is quite legal--and common--to rent a house before you've finished paying off the mortgage.
