I am a new freelancer. I live in US but i dont have a bank account (cannot get an account as i am in dependant visa). In my profile (Billing Methods) I just verified a paypal account (which is linked to my husband's US bank account). Will this paypal linking work out without any issues if i get any projects further? Or should i go for any Payoneer option?
And my last question is, I am asked to verify a US bank account if i try to submit a proposal for US clients. What should be done in this case? Can i submit my husband's bank account that is already linked to paypal? I think that will not help. So is there any other way for this?

Unfortunately this means that you may not actually work on Upwork at all.
See eligibility to join Upwork - especially:
If you are living in the U.S., you need to be either a permanent resident or a citizen to work as a freelancer on Upwork. Most other visa holders, including B-1, B-2, F-1, J-1, H-1, H1-B, H-4, or L-2 visas, are not eligible to work on Upwork.
