If we are in an area that has a poor connection, are we able to still enter information into an offline format and submit later?

Unfortunately no, that is not possible. HTML forms are viewed under a browser and gets submitted to a server. There is no way for forms to save entered information temporarily and then submitted later when connection is resumed
There might be browser add-ons built specifically for that feature (I'm not sure), but Jotform itself does not and can never have that mechanism. HTML forms do not work that way, sorry.
Hope I was able to shed some light into your question. Feel free to contact us again if there's anything else. Thanks!

Is it possible to use offline at all? We can pdf the data ourselves.

You can upload the pdf's into a form with a file upload field, but the data will remain in pdf format. There is no way to automatically convert the data into a format used by the form's database. It will just show up in the submissions page as a link to the pdf file.
