Folks, my wife (on J1 visa with waiver issued) and I (on H1) are planning to travel to Puerto Rico or Hawaii in December. However our visa stamps have expired but I have a valid I-797 and she has a valid DS-2019. Has anyone traveled to PR/ Hawaii in a similar scenario?

You don’t even have to carry your passport if you are going to PR/Hawaii - the driving license itself would suffice

Traveling to HI is same as traveling to any other US state. Your visa stamping does not matter. Don't know about PR.
