Doubt filling DS 160 for H1B. My status change from F1 to H1B

I am in the USA right now. I am filling out DS 160 as I am visiting India, so I must get an H1B visa stamped. I have below doubts about filling out DS 160.

  1. When I was on F1. I came to the USA on 19 Jan 2021 and left on 29 June 2021. Then came again on 29 July till date. So, do I have to enter 2 entries for this?

  2. I have previously been on F1 which I applied for in the same city and country. Is the below correct for applying in the same country or city ? And I was given a fingerprint of all fingers.

  3. Address and Phone Information should be of Indian address and phone number. Email addresses should be personal or professional?

  4. Person/Entity Paying for Your Trip → Self or Employer? - I am paying for my trip, so I am selecting SELF. Is this correct?

Thanks in advance.

Yes you will need to enter both port of entry dates. Also carry the copy of the online I-94 record to submit as supporting documents with the dropbox packet or carry to your interview.
