Once you change your visa to F1, you will be treated as individual. But to change your status you should get an i-20 from any college in US, you should also provide proof of required funds to show that you can complete your education. can you be specific about your question? If you are looking for an answer like if there is any link between F1 and your spouse on H1. Then no both visas are different and will affect each other.
