Yes you can.

Amendments don’t matter. As long as you you have a valid I 94 you are good. Have done it in past.

This is a very gray area. If you leave the country and enter, your I-94 number when you enter is different than the one that will print on your h approval notice.

How do you guys schedule your hours? Say I need to hit 200 hours per month. Currently I take the amount of working days in a month (M-F) and divide it by 200 to get how many hours I need to bill per day. For example, May has 20 working days, so I need to bill 10hrs./day M-F. I’ve done exactly that thus far and have been able to stick to a pretty consistent schedule. But I know a lot work on weekends. For instance, if I worked Saturdays too there are 25 billable days which means 8hrs/day.
