Default Extending wife's stay in US, need advice

Let me start with some background. My wife has a masters from a US university. She has used her OPT from that masters. Her employer filed H1B at wrong address and by the time he re-filed at the correct location, the H1B cap was full in 2011. So she had to go back to school. She is doing a certification course which will be over by March 15th 2013. She is working full time as part of CPT. She cannot get OPT thru cert course.
My status:
My priority date is Sept 2006 EB3. I just filed for labor cert under EB2. I have a 2 yr EAD/AP card. My questions are:
1. If I go on H1B and she goes on H4, does she need to go out of the country to get approval (I heard this from a friend of mine).
2. I believe I can apply for both visas concurrently. We will apply under premium process. In that case, once we get the notice of receipt, is she allowed to continue with her stay in the US till a decision is made by USCIS on the visas.
3. If I go on H1B, can I travel on AP or do I need to go for stamping and my AP becomes void.
4. Are there any other options to extend her stay here.
5. Can she do another masters and get a CPT and continue her job.
Thanks in advance.
