WRT the "Addendum to Offer of Employment" agreement

Customer Question
WRT the "Addendum to Offer...
WRT the "Addendum to Offer of Employment" agreement below:Timeline:
a. Aug 2013 - "Section 1" on my original "offer of employment" states salary as $100,000.
b. Jan 2015 - The Addendum below was signed by the employer and ME.
c. Jan-May 2015 - From Jan thru May 2015, I received no salary while I continued to work.
d. Jun 2015 - My salary was restored to $100,000 from June 1, 2015, and continued through Feb 2016. HOWEVER - there is no documentation other than the June pay-stub (and future pay-stubs) acknowledging the restored salary.
e. Jul 2015 - The employer realized $0 salary is not legal in NJ, and back paid MIN WAGES ONLY for Jan thru May. The min-wage back pay statements note "retro pay" and the pay period (Jan thru May, 2015).
f. Mar 2016 - In March 2016, the salary again went down to minimum wage and continues to remain at min-wage. However on this occasion, no formal communication was made, and I did not sign any other agreements.Questions:
1. Does the restoration of salary to $100K in June 2015 imply that Section 1. in the Addendum below is no longer active, and restores to the original Section 1 of the Employment Agreement which had a Salary of $100K ?
2. Or is Section 1 below still in force ?
3. Is it in fact illegal to have a salary of $0. If so, is the addendum below legally null and void ?
4. If the addendum below is null and void, can I sue for full pay ($100K rate) for the period Jan-May, 2015 ?Addendum follows...*****************************
