    Yes, you are required to work for pay at least 20 hours per week and maximum 40 hours per week. During Initial Opt it was allowed to do Volunteer work or internships without pay but not in OPT extension.

    atleast 2 pay stubs required before filing stem extension. Ask your employer to run payroll.

    for filing STEM OPT Extension, I don' think we need to be on payroll but after STEM OPT Extension starts, we need to be on payroll is what i thought.

    Technically yes, but it is advisable to have two pay stubs before filing as the USCIS case worker needs to believe that you have a real paid job. Donot risk your stem extension for few payroll taxes.
