Yes, you may lose your green card if you suggest to USCIS that you have abandoned your residency by staying out of the U.S. for more than 6 months at a time. You may still travel for longer periods of time, but you must file an I-131, Application for Travel Document while you are in the U.S. first.
Hope this helps.
