The "Member state of first entry" will be Austria because that's where you will pass through immigration.
I am surprised nobody mentions VOIP. With VOIP you technically have a fixed line number that works over an internet connection. There are various apps for both iOS and Android. I personally like Zoiper. My current provider offers polish numbers which will work over a Canadian internet connection. So your friends and relatives can simply call you in Canada ...
As I see it, you have three options. Option 1: Skype I like this option because all you need is a credit card and internet connection. You can make calls from your computer or a smartphone with the Skype app. Option 2: Calling card Two calling cards off the top of my head: CiCi and Vox.

Define "reasonable". The distance isn't a problem, road conditions shouldn't be either (but don't expect US style superhighways) except some parts maybe in winter (snow and icing). There might be rental agencies disallowing entry into Poland in their vehicles (crime statistics...) but you'd have to check that with your chosen rental agency and I seriously ...
