Maternity Leave and Pay Stubs

I am on H-1B & my wife also on H-1B. After three months pregnancy leave my wife is planning not to work and to transfer from H-1B to H-4. She will not have last paychecks copy for three months so will it be an issue during transfer? Will she need to start the job again to get three paychecks copy ?

Reasonable maternity leave should be considered "in status" period, so pay stubs should not be needed.
