    Answered . I do not see a problem. As long as your in a viable marriage and you have to temporarily undergo a commutter marriage for the stated reasons. Your H-4 is tied to his H-1B and your marriage. As long as your still married, and it remains viable your fine. The level of scrutiny on a green card application is higher on a unorthodox/commutter marriage. On an H-1B/H-4 is must less lower in almost none and its sounds you have a reasonable explanation/reason. Good luck.
