  1. Yes it is legal. Request an EIN number from the State department and that should be sufficient to open the bank account. That is for the work bank account though. It sounds from your description that you will actually be working for the LLC and this is prohibited under H-4. You should speak to an immigration lawyer to make sure you do not put your H-4 status at risk.
