The answer to your question of how long will the H 1B be renewed for after an I-40 approval. It is usually granted for 1 year, but it is often approved for 3 years. It really depends on what the employer may have requested.
The USCIS has discretionary authority to approve an H1B petition for a time period which it believes the employer will employ the beneficiary in the capacity and under the terms of the H1B petition. For example, a project may be of only 1 year duration, or it can be a three year need.
I hope this helps.
