An H-1B is an employment based status. It is not in any way related to the asylum. And if she was granted asylum 7 years ago, then she should have gotten a green card already. So something is not right here.
If she was granted asylum from China, she should not travel there unless the country conditions from which she sought asylum have changed significantly, and she is no longer at reasonable risk of being persecuted. Otherwise, if nothing has changed, and she goes back with asylum, the US government can revoke her asylum, and she can end up stuck in China. If she is really scared, why would she go back. That's what the US government would say. This does not happen to everyone, but if she decides to go, it is a very big risk she is taking. Again, she can lose her asylum status. I realize this is a very important thing for her to do to see her mother, but she has to make that decision knowing the risks, which are high.
