How long is long term? ( Sitting how long at a clip, how much total time. )

Barn is not a good idea due to dampness and mice.

Driving the car until the motor is warmed up is a good idea, 1/2 hour would be enough depending on air temp. Some run the motor at idle for 15 min and call it good, this is actually worse than letting it sit as nothing gets hot enough to burn off moisture.

Think about a car tent with a floor.

My 97 SL320 sits in a dry unheated garage through the 4 - 5 month winter with no prep other than checking / charging the battery every few months ( it has a few computers that use power to keep the memory alive )
