Question Which visa for one year of research?

Does anybody know which visa is best for research? I have been told J1 visa is good.

Would it be possible to spend 1 year on a J1 visa, return to home country for a year, and then start a residency on an H2B the following year?

I have heard that it is not possible to apply for a visa within two years of having a J1, is this true for all visa's?

Which would be the best visa for my situation, one year of research, ending 12months before the start date of residency?

Thanks for any help...
