example: from 514/438 area i will move in the 705 area... will i be able to get a 705 phone number after my relocation without losing my plan and price?

It is part of Fizz terms of service, yes. Same as videotron.
.
Here is a map of the subscription vs coverage area.

.
Here is their statement on partner networks. They may block your usage of partner networks (effectively cutting off phone use if you're living out of subscription area), if you use service primarily on partner networks for 3 months in a row.

So, you wouldn't lose your number, but you'd have to port it out to a local service provider.

I believe only numbers from Quebec and Ottawa region are available.

I read a few people were able to port other numbers in, but not sure how long they'll be able to keep them.

The 705 area is not part of the Fizz subscription area, so you definitely cannot change to a 705 number. You may lose your service after 3 consecutive months of most of your usage being out of the subscription area (most of Quebec and Ottawa area).
