Don’t think so it will affect immigration. She has to declare that additional income in taxes.

I think it is fine if it is passive income, but I am not familiar enough to know the details between active vs passive

I guess it’s legal if she owns the house.

Life in Europe isn’t too bad either.

This one is for folks on h1b visa. So at time when you have an offer in hand(not accepted the offer yet and h1b transfer process not yet begun) while you are working with your current employer, do you even speak to your employer about your new offer to see if they make a counter offer? Is there a risk involved with this approach assuming your current employer doesn't provide you with a counter offer and they ask you to leave immediately (and your h1b visa hasn't been transferred either)
