influenza neuraminidase

Where exactly the viral neuraminidase works to free the virus? Within the 
cell cytoplasm? Where does it cut? Does it separate the virus of its 
haemaglutinin?  Graeme Price said that the influenza virus does not enter 
the bloodstream.Is that true? Is it possible that viraemia won't happen 
during infection? If the virus went on the bloodstream, could it be 
inactiveted by linking to sialyl residues of acute phase proteins, for 
example? And in this case, could viral neuraminidase free the virus?
I am a brazilian epidemiologist trying to understand a little bit how 
things work at a molecular level. Thanks for your help.
