Default Spouse is taking 18 month assignment in UK my company has Flexible Work Assignment

We are both USA citizens and have never worked outside of USA before.

My spouse has been given a 18 month assignment to work in UK and then to return back to USA.

I of course would like to go along and have asked my company if I could continue to do my job but remotely out of our rental home in the UK.

My company has a Flexible Work Assignment (FWA) program where I would be allowed to continue to do my current USA job but from a remote location via internet, email, and cell phone.

Is this type of remote working possible in UK for a USA citizen? If so would the UK expect me to pay UK taxes during the 18 months?
