Google Voice may save a number as a home number, and in that mode it will not allow you to forward messages. In order to change that there's an option in legacy site.

I didn't access my gv number for about a year, and I lost it. Is there any way to reclaim it?

Open a new account and get the number before someone else does?

Sounds like it's too late for that, and the chances are slim.
Perhaps text / call the number and see if it's a nice guy.

Anyone know why sometimes Google Voice will allow to place an international call and sometimes it won't?

Do you dial the 1 or the proper area code (exit code) to go out?
Without money in the account?

 I loaded $10 back in the day and still have funds..
 $0.01-$0.03 for an average call.
Don't try to be someone else , be who you are because everyone else is taken.

Whenever I dial international call, I dial a + (plus) and then do international area code with the rest of the phone number

If your dialing everything correct. And the account has funds.

 The only thing I can think of is your not connected to a good network.
 Are using a public wi-fi? Or are you using your mobile data?
That plays a role in Google voice like I've once wrote about when using Google voice abroad, and the same would apply here if you're using Google voice and you're not connected to a good Network.
