Does anyone know if I can pause my account and how do I do it?
A subscription may not be paused, only cancelled http://www.adobe.com/legal/licenses-terms.html
If you cancel early you pay 1/2 of the remaining time
Moved to the Account, Payment, & Plan forum.
For what purpose do you wish to stop your plan? I ask because cancelling an annual plan early will result in a 50% termination fee. And if you're currently enjoying a student discounted rate, you'll lose it when you try to re-subscribe again later.
The costlier month-to-month plans afford more flexibility to start & stop whenever you wish without penalty.
