Abstract: Let $H$ be a Hopf algebra with bijective antipode. In a previous paper, we introduced $H$-Azumaya Yetter-Drinfel'd module algebras, and the Brauer group ${\mathrm {BQ}}(k,H)$ classifying them. We continue our study of ${\mathrm {BQ}}(k,H)$, and we generalize some properties that were previously known for the Brauer-Long group. We also investigate separability properties for $H$-Azumaya algebras, and this leads to the notion of strongly separable $H$-Azumaya algebra, and to a new subgroup of the Brauer group ${\mathrm {BQ}}(k,H)$.
