From a completely legal perspective, can I go for a sabbatical (leave without pay) for 2-3 months on an h1b visa while being employed by my current employer? I plan to stay in the US during the sabbatical period.

I know of someone on my team that was on H1B and took a sabbatical during that period, so I you can.

I am pretty sure you need to leave the US while you take your leave. You should probably consult with a lawyer, messing up your H1B status is not something you want to do.
