My wife's passport is expiring on 27th September 2015. Her US Visa is expiring on 20th September 2015. She will be travelling to India on 8th Jan 2015 and return on 30th Mar 2015. It is a problem for her to travel back to US with less than 6 months of passport and Visa expiry dates?
No, it probably won't be a bid problem. BUT ... she should consider renewing her passport and possibly getting a new visa stamp. Otherwise, she'll be having to deal with a lot of paperwork later on in the year.

No, that will not be any "problem" at all and wife will not have any problems being readmitted. However, wife better take appropriate measures to have her passport renewed once in Hindustan or even with the Indian consulate here and apply for a new visa stamp after issuance, for the more she postpones, the more complicated dealing with that later on might be.

She should renew passport before coming back. Otherwise I don't see a problem, if your H-1B status is still valid when she comes back in.
