Does my ps4 have to be on so I can remote play on the Vita anywhere I go? Explain this to me. --- Previous rank 5 all time in the world Capture the Leader/Guardian Gears of War 3. Official fiancee of Naoto Shirogane( it's canon too)

Well with the PS3 it just needs to be on standby and a PSP or Vita that has been set up for Remote Play with the console can turn it on from anywhere if it's connected to the internet. I'm not sure if it would work through 3G with the appropriate Vita model but if it does it's probably not very good.
You get a far better response if it's close to the console and connects directly to it though and even then it's not great, it should be better with the PS4 since it was developed alongside the Vita with that functionality in mind.
So, based on how it works with the PS3, the PS4 shouldn't need to be turned on for it to work just on standby, the only question is how usable it'll be over a distance. --- PSN: ForeverLost XBL: ForeverLost360
