Default H4 to J1 transfer question

Hi,
I am in the US under an H4 visa.
My husbdand's company wants to sponsor me for a J1.
1. can I get an J1 being on an H4 ? will I keep my H4 (and have 2
visas) or will the H4 be transfered into a J1 ?
2. is it a problem that the company is my the company sponsoring my
husband's H1 ?

Thank you for your answer or a pointer in the right direction for me to
get this info

Can I get an J1 being on an H4 ? Yes - either by doing a change of
status or by applying for a visa abroad.

Will I keep my H4 (and have 2 visas) or will the H4 be transfered into
a J1 ? A visa is a travel document, that allow you to enter in the US.
I think that your question is about status rather visa. Your status
will become H4 (you can only have one status at a time). If you apply
for a J1 visa abroad, you will have 2 visas. Otherwise, next time you
go abroad, you will have to apply for a J1 visa in order to come back
in the US with a J1 status.

Is it a problem that the company is my the company sponsoring my
husband's H1 ? I don't think that should be a problem. Actually, you
may not even have to disclose it.

he/she means - once you apply for a change of status to J1 and it is approved, you will be in J-1 status.

be careful, though. Make sure J-1 doesn't carry a home residency requirement - you won't be able to get H4 or GC until you spend two years at home.
