  1. If the camera is connected directly to its modem and has the public IP, then no, you don't have to have a router at that location too. A router is only needed for sharing of the public IP at that location. So not having a router there is perhaps an inconvenience, even a bit unorthodox, but not a necessity. Of course, if you did use a router there, you'd need to open and forward the camera's port(s) on the router's firewall to gain access.
