Default Consulting in the US - tax questions?

Hello,

I am a canadian resident who will be working on a consulting contract in the US (NYC) under the TN status.

I share an apartment in Quebec with my girlfriend but will have to rent an apartment in NYC as I'll be working from there.

Questions:

1) Given I will be working in the US, will I be paying US or Canadian taxes? I can start in late June or July, so have the option of being 6 months + 1 day in either country: does it changes the answer, if so, is US the best option?

2) As a consultant, I can get tax deductions for my business expenses. Does that apply to
- apartment rental in NYC if I'm working at the client (in full as an hotel would be or only fraction e.g. my office)?
- travel to Canada (as I have a residential tie over there), I intend to fly back every other week

Thanks!

Alex
