You can leave of absence on H1b as long as both your employer and you have the intention and agreement to let you come back to the original employment, regardless getting paid or not. That is to say, you don’t intend to use leave of absence for looking for a new job. As long as you are back for the original employment after leave of absence, your status should not be impacted.

As long as your firm is paying you for the leave then you're fine. If not, then you cannot be in the US and have to take the leave of absence outside of the US. Not saying I agree with the law.. Just pointing out what the law says.
