It isn't about the cloud status check, but about editing photo's in a gallery which is synced with my desktop like on this link Get started with Lightroom on the web | I said Gallery, but I did mean to say collection.
I sometimes want to be able to edit photo's when I'm not at my office where my catalog's are, but just on a mobile device while being out of the door. LR mobile offers that, and so does LR web. However if I'm buying a Windows Surface tablet, I will not be able to use LR mobile. So the question is if I could use LR web. It seems logical you need an internet connection to get your previews, but can you like with LR mobile then go offline and still be able to edit in LR web. I'm not talking about LR as a program on your device, but the web browser version of LR.

No, it's not possible. Lightroom on the Web is a web site - so if you're offline, you can't use it.
With the Surface, you'll need to use real Lightroom.
Is it possible to open a collection on an other computer (for instance the surface) to edit it in real Lightroom to sync it with my original gallery, in the same way I would when using mobile when working offline?
So that would make it possible to work offline on a laptop or surface without the need of the gallery and still being able to sync the edits later on when I got a internet connection.
