Hello everyone

I am currently on H1B visa working and residing in the state of New Jersey since 1 year. I will be leaving a maternity leave for 3 months but I have some questions:

1-Do I need to be get paid during this period? My employer does not know what needs to be done

2-If I do not get paid, will this terminate my H1-B status? I am currently in a green card process and it is really scaring me if this cause any problem

3-I found that I am eligible to take 12 weeks of maternity leave under Federal FMLA  I would like to understand if my H1B will not go out of status when I go out on maternity leave under Federal FMLA

thank you
