Webcal is a product that does all of the following, but you will have to
setup a web server for it. I run it on Apache with SSL, and I can access
my calendar from anywhere. It will also send you email reminders! There
is no Debian package for this product. The feature list is mind

Also, there seem to be quite a few products named "webcal" - the one I
am talking about can be found at http://www.math.utexas.edu/webcalendar

Let me know if you need help with setup.
