Although the card has expired your Immigration status remains unchanged and it's a simple matter to complete the USCIS I-90 form (and pay the fee) to renew it. I-9 verfication requires an Alien number. Here's some more info:

Can a green card holder work in Asia?

Yes but it becomes a problem during naturalization. Green card in US is mainly for a person to stay and work in US permanently and so its supposed to be maintained and renewed every 10 years. Also the green card holder would have to apply for a reentry permit which is valid only for 2 years before leaving US in case he intends to work abroad. New reentry permit is required if the stay is for more than 2 years. Main eligibility criteria for applying for US citizenship is to have stayed in US as a green card holder for minimum 5 years prior to filing the Form N-400. In case green card holder plans to work abroad its important to file Form N-470 to preserve residence in US for naturalization purposes.

Can a student with an EAD card on Optional Practical Training marry a green card holder and continue to work in the US before receiving the H1-B visa?

You can marry the green card holder but that does not affect your ability to work. Your right to work is completely tied to your OPT and then your H1B. If there is no gap between the end of your OPT and start of H1B then you can carry on working. If your OPT ends then you have to stop working and can not start work again until you have your H1B. Your marriage to a green card holder is irrelevant - you must have your own visa to stay in the USA.
