Timeline

Long story short, after applying for the K-1 Visa, we found out that my fiance will get deployed. We just got word of our approval of the k-1 visa and we are waiting for the package to come to us. ( i'm canadian, he's american)

While my fiance ( to be husband) is deployed, I hoped to return back to Korea to teach for a year while he was gone.

After we get married in the US, with our K-1 visa. Do I need to stay in the US for a certain amount of time? When can I leave the US? What are the rules concerning this?

The K1 visa is a once entry visa, if you leave the usa before you recieve your advance parole you will not be allowed to enter again.

Right. You will need either your green card or advance parole (AP) before you can travel (and be allowed to re-enter).

You typically would file an I-131 along with your green card application (I-485) as soon as possible after marriage, as there's no extra charge for the I-131 if you file it with the I-485. It will take typically 2-3 months for you to receive your AP travel document.

Should you file, and then an emergency comes up before you receive your AP, you can make an InfoPass appointment for emergency AP (wanting to teach somewhere wouldn't be considered emergency).

Good luck!

The K1 visa is a once entry visa, if you leave the usa before you recieve your advance parole you will not be allowed to enter again.

You can leave when you want. There is no time limit to be here before you can leave the US. Form I-131 has conditions that can get Advanced Parole to you even if you are already out of the country when you apply for it. Look at the I-131 and it should clear things up for you.
