I am outside USA, can I apply for job and get a H1b visa while my green card application is in process. My wife is LPR and has filed for my greencard in March 2011. She became LPR in 2009. I wanted to find a way by which I can be in USA while I wait for my green card.

Yes you can! That is because the H-1B visa allows for dual intent, ie that you want a green card.
