You can't completely hide your on-line status from your friends. They will always see you on their Friends list as being on-line or not. The only way to 'hide' is to not use that account at all. Log in with a second account that they don't know exists.

Yeah it is basically impossible to seem perfectly offline.. Clicking that eye symbol in the contact list will work for the most part, it'll make it seem like you're offline on people's contact list, but yes they'll still see a green "ONLINE" tag in your profile if they look that up..

Worse yet is that some 3rd party viewers (Phoenix viewer) actually let's you see if someone is hiding their online status from you, and in my experience that does strain relationships quite much, so make sure they aren't using that viewer if you intend to hide. :/

You can't.  Anyone who is a member of a group you belong to can see if you are online or not.  Anyone can send you and IM or give you something and find out if you are online.  As someone else already said, the only way to be online without others knowing is to be on an alt no one knows about.
