yes, that is possible. EAD = right to earn, be it for others or being self employed.

Would be more appropriate if you work for the company that filed your GC. If you have your own company, the USCIS may not believe that you intend to work for your GC petitioner as you own your own company. However, your wife can own and operate the company and you can be a passive shareholder and continue to work for your GC petitioner. I would not recommend self petitioning under AC-21.

Its both a yes and a no.

Yes, you can work - but you lose your H1 status and you will need to use EAD on your FT as well.
No, you can't work - if you intend to stay on H1
