Yes you can enter to activate, then go back. Expect some questions as you will have been out longer than 6 months, but they are lenient on this originally as they realIse people often have things to finish up etc. Don't volunteer any information to the immigration officer. Answer his questions truthfully but as briefly as you can.

Yes, you will be liable for tax on those earnings, but hopefully the place you are in has a tax treaty with the US so you are not double taxed. (Do NOT declare yourself non resident for that period to avoid paying tax as that will be taken as you abandoning reidency and you will lose your green card.)

I'm not clear what you mean about your wife. Are you also going to get her a DV visa? Then she also needs to enter before the visa expires and be back within a year of that. (If you don't plan on getting her a DV visa for whatever reason, it will be a much longer and more expensive process to sponsor her as wife of an LPR under F2A category.) Be aware that returning to work elsewhere does not get you great kudos from CBP officials, rather it gets you lectures about residency requirements. Just be careful.

My wife is going to apply with me for DV visa, but what i'm thinking that i need sometime to clear the things here in UAE plus i can save more money from my current job. Also my wife she has to complete her master studies over here and her job contact will continue till end of the year.

Do u think i shall share this plan with the immigration officer ?
