Being on medical leave &/or disability will NOT affect your H-1B visa status. It is not the same as being "benched". However, you cannot recapture the time off of work due to your medical leave/disability.
Depending on how many quarters you have worked in Texas, you might be eligible for State disability. You would need to obtain the form from your Doctor & have him/her submit it on your behalf.
