UX/UI designer here. Used to work for a while but then decided to do my master's. I'm living about an hour by car from the next big city (in Germany) and I basically see two options: I could do freelancing from my home office and since I get many emails with people asking me to do some work for them, I don't think I would run out of money. The other option is to get a job at one of the biggest companies in Germany with high payment, not much overwork but 2 hours of commuting everyday.

What do you think is the better way to go? My biggest fear is that I won't earn a lot as a freelancer.

second option and move asap.

you can earn plenty as ux/ui designer but you're still underperforming unless you get very very lucky. it's much better financially to work at a company for some time and then go freelance after you have a reputation, a couple of assured clients in the bag, and a network of friends and colleagues.

what is a fair price for a UI freelancer? i will need one in a few weeks for a few projects, but don't know what is a fair price. i was planning on using upwork ukranians, as that seemed like a fair compromise on price/quality of qualifications.

depends on your priorities: security or freedom. 2 hour commute is a big deal and can make a big difference to your quality of life, but working in a team might offset that.

Thanks, I guess that makes sense. First some more experience at a company and then I can still switch to freelancing.

It really depends on the skills, experience and location I guess. I would suggest looking on dribbble to find a UI designer as you can directly see their personal work.

How to achieve this with little to no connections and non-existent portfolio.

Without the portfolio you can't achieve that I guess. Use behance or dribbble to show off your work
