Good morning, here is the answer to your query.
Your wife has two options.
The first is to have your wife depart the U.S. and re-enter with a valid passport and H-4 visa.
The second option would be to file a nunc pro tunc H-4 extension application.
The Nunc Pro Tunc is an extraordinary discretionary remedy where the USCIS may approve a late filed request to change or extend status, based on facts and extenuating circumstances presented.
The USCIS has the discretion to approve a NPT request if it is demonstrated that:
If your wife wishes to leave the US to renew the I-94 then that is typically the best process because the NPT is risky and highly discretionary to the USCIS officer examining the request.

She can cross into Mexico which right now is easier because of the COVID restrictions.
Canada has their road borders closed as does Mexico, she has to enter by air.
If you are from a country that requires a visa for Canada, then yes she needs a visa to enter Canada.
