From your facts, you wife is fine with an unexpired visa stamp, D/S I-94 and unexpired I-20 with TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION from the DSO.
It is you that will need to utilize automatic visa revalidation. In that regard, you didn't give us enough information about your H-1B. Same employer? Not a 'job shop' that sent you to client worksites? No extension filed? No 'downtime' without paychecks?
You would probably find it helpful to have a Skype consultation and file review with an attorney ... just click on one of our names to find our e-mail address.
