Bring your own basic first-aid kit.
do not expect to find things you rely for basic medical emergencies wherever you are located.
back-up all communications you have with your employer/school/whatever by email.
Communicate clearly at all times: don't be put off by evasive/vague answers.
If you are working, make sure your contract outlines all possible potential areas of responsibilities of both you and your employer.
If you are going to work there, make sure you are given the correct official papers to apply for the correct visa before you arrive: do't accept an 'it is ok' from your employer.
research as much as possible before you travel - ignorance is not an excuse, so ask the questions before you need to

Not really necessary. You can get what you need from a chemist here without prescriptions as you need back home. A good thing to bring though is Difflam or Strepsil tabs. The strong ones which numb the throat - for when you get a sore one or a tickle.

And if you are a su-do-ku addict (like myself) bring a few of those booklets. I cannot find them here.
If you like knitting do bring a selection of needles as Chinese knitting needles are not what you will
be happy to use, believe me!
