My B1/B2 visa to the US expires at the end of Feb 2022. If I enter to visit the US in mid Jan 2022 will I get a I94 valid for 6 months or it’s typically upto the visa end date only ? And is there any draw back in staying longer than the visa expiry date but assuming it is within the I94 end date

The moment you enter, you have 6 months to stay. The visa validity is just for entry. I just entered the US on the day my B1/B2 visa expired. Staying for 6 more days. Drawback is: if you leave the country you can’t get back in until you have your renewed visa, obviously.

Do you mean entering for business ? That totally depends on the cbp officer at port of entry on how you explain what you are here for. If your assignment work is X days they might give X days plus some buffer. They typically give 6 months on i94 for tourism.
