Working remotely from the US for a Canadian company on H4 visa

hi all, Our family is moving to the US this summer as my husband will be working there on an H1 visa. While my husband will have H1 status, I will be holding an H4 visa. No EAD yet. I'm hoping to continue working remotely from the US for my Canadian company. Is this allowed while I'm on an H4 status?

Re: 3520/3520a

Re: 3520/3520a

Thanks nelsona for the quick response and so relieved to learn that I don't have to file the 3520s and 5471! Am I correct in assuming I still have to file a fincen form 114 (fbar)? If so, for the fbar - should I be disclosing the corporation accounts for my consulting company. (the consulting compan...
