I am a full-time employee with the xxx company on H1 b visa. I am planning on taking leave for more than 1 month. Is it okay to take unpaid medical leave on h1b and stay in the USA.

Thank you In advance.

Do you have medical/hospital documents?  


With corporates, you will be always paid even on a medical leave. If you're with a consulting firm, then you better have all supporting documents.

It is a complex matter. As long as you intend to return to this employer and he provides such documentation, you may be permitted this leave. You should discuss the matter with your employer. If health concerns are not present, you should cover yourself by talking to an Immigration Lawyer.
