First question -- What do mean you got someone to help your wife file H1 ? Did she get a job ? Only an employer can file a H1 ; your wife cannot file her H1.

Now answer to your question -- if you file both together, the last one approved will prevail.

Default It will be H4, till you explicitly change the status

Before answering your question the following are my assumptions. Correct me if I am wrong:

She is on H4 currently and your company is extending it along with your H1.
She is currently in US and does not intend to travel out of the country at least till your H1 is not renewed.
She is getting an H1B visa this year and will be eligible to work from October 1st.
She currently does not have an SSN.
She is getting her H1B through a consulting company.

My answers

Just an H1 approval does not change her status from H4. Once she gets an assignment or on October 1st, which ever date she is comfortable, She has to get her SSN with her new I-797 approval to change her status to H1 from H4.

However please note if you are in a consultancy mode, the employer may not happy to do that without a project.
