My mom back home in South Africa isn’t doing very well and I want to go see her for 3 weeks, can I leave the USA on an extended visa without terminating my visa and return to the USA? Or would I have to reapply for another visa?
Depends on what you are referring to when you say "visa".

More facts are needed. If you are here on an H-1B, should be no problem. A valid B visitor visa may present issues depending upon how long you have been here already, the purpose of your return to the Us so soon, and what your I-94 and travel history show.
