Query regarding GC

Columbus, IN |
Filed under: Immigration US visas

I am on H1b and my visa stamping & i94 are valid till Dec-2014. Current my GC is filed by my company under EB1. But due to some personal reason I might have to visit India for a week. In case I travel outside US before receiving the GC will that cancel my GC application?
Also, as my spouse's GC is also getting filed under family GC and she needs to also visit to India with me will the GC application for my spouse be invalidated?
Lastly, if my spouse needs to stay back in India for longer period (e.g. 1 year) will that invalidate my spouse's GC?
