Do I need a work visa to work *remotely* from another country?

Let's say my wife is transferred by her company to work in Thailand, or China, or Australia, or anywhere outside the US. Her company gets me (her husband) a visa to live in said country with her. While in said country, I want to work remotely for a company based in the US, which does not do business in said country. My company is willing to hire me as an independent contractor.
Do I need a work visa in said country?
I realize this answer will differ from country to country, but I'm curious to see what kind of advice I can get in general on this question.
