      If your program is going to end in 2015, there won't be any problem if your visa is expired. You will still be on F1 if you are already on F1.

        As long as your I20 is valid.. You are in valid F1 status.

          Question is not clear.. If you are currently enrolled in masters and u stay in school till 2015 u don't need H1-B.. Even if F1 gets expired, if u have valid I20 with full time status in school.. It wont create any problem for u.. Take care
