Does that canon require you to attend the NO?

If you live too far away from a church to go to Sunday Mass on a weekly basis, then you are "severely and physically impeded" and are therefore dispensed.

How far is "too far"? And what if you choose to be far away for work purposes (as opposed to being born/raised in the area)?

It would be wrong to deliberately choose to be far away from a Catholic church, I'd say. How far is too far is very subjective, depending on factors such as whether a person has a car, can he afford the gas, does he have small children, etc. It is something to be decided by each individual with the counsel of a priest, just like NFP.

edit: one can choose to live far away from a Catholic church, as long as it isn't for the purpose of avoiding Mass.
