- As per US law, you cannot work or find work there on a tourist visa, and hence if you caught violating travel status, you may be detained at Immigration Detention

- However, as you want to continue online your consultation work in US through your personal website , then it will not violate the rule of US. 

- However , you cannot search online clients in US i.e. work remotely also not allowed in US.

As you will be having a business visa you can continue online work. Moreover the clients would be from India and hence there would be no problem.

There's no restriction for you to practice your profession online or offline. 

The online consultation can be rendered from any where, there's no legal infirmity in it.
