What is the name of your state? CA

HI, would someone has any idea about my situation, please give me some advice...will greatly appreciate :)

I came here with a J1 visa. I got my NOS in my home country already. Im still waiting for my wiaver from Dept. of State. My concerns are:
1. IF Im goin to marry a US citizen, can I immediately go back to work even if my status is pending(meaning, all the paperworks are just submitted to USCIS),
2. How long is the process for me to get a decision from USCIS?
3. What is/are the visa/status that I need to apply? Do I need to apply for a working visa and permanent residence status?
