Why isn't the subject repeated in the second clause (as it is in English)?

Because the German sentence is wrong.

Isn't "to move" "umziehen"? Can you also use "wechseln"?

"wechseln" is a strange word to use in this sentence. I would probably translate to "change": "I was not popular here, thus I will change to abroad." But I must admit my english is not perfect; it may be an even stranger choice is english than it is in german.

Also, "to move" is "umziehen" in this context, yes.

you have to repeat the "ich" in the second clause! It's wrong!

Rigidity that only allows the above sentence is unacceptable
