Can someone tell me how the tourist visa thing works? If a person was here three months in the spring and then came back in the fall, can they stay for more than 3 months if her departure date is stamped for later than the 3 months? As long as they have a 6 month gap before returning again?

Yes! General guideline is to cool off for as many months as you stayed here, before returning

Best practice is to love in home country for better part of the year (i.e. 6 months or more). However, this is only a best practice and not a rule. If you stayed for 6 months already in a year, then you should definitely have a 6 month cooling period before returning to US. However, if you stayed only 3 month for the first time, you can come back again after few months and live till the time i94 is granted. No one bothers how much you stay after i94 is granted.

Go with either the visa expiry date or i94 stamp date whichever is earlier.

D1: so even though the person was here for 3 months this year, she can stay for ~4 months on this visit instead of leaving wishing 3? I thought there was an annual 6 month limit to stay in the US... But then why did the immigration officer grant a longer period of stay?
Sorry, clearly confused and just want to make sure I'm getting it right.

Leaving within* 3

Also how do you learn about this stuff?

I'm pretty sure this is incorrect. I know people who have their parents here and send them to Canada for a week every 5 months so that they can stay here. The limit is you cannot stay more than 6 months on a visit visa in one go.

K1: yes agreed, because the I94 record won't allow you to stay for more than 6 months at a time. I'm asking about a situation where a person came to the US for 3 months, left for 2 months, and then came back. NOW can she stay for more than 3 months? It's not >6 months all at once. She has almost 5 months on her I94 stamp from the immigration officer.

You get a new stamp every time you enter. If for every stay you do not stay more than 6 months. So in your case the length of any stay, previous or current, is irrelevant as long as each stay is less than 6 months at a time.

It depends. Frequent longer visits raise issues. Be prepared to answer questions why you want to visit US again. Tourists does not stay 3 months.
