comment Why are papers without code but with results accepted?
this last point I agree with.

Possibly the target audience of an academic submission is the reviewer, but the target audience of a paper is definitely the community at large.

comment Are extended periods of unpaid leave compatible with an academic career?
ah. but then it's not at all uncommon to go on leave for a year. Usually you're going on leave to go somewhere else, so the person doing this would need some skilled negotiation to finagle a leave that isn't "going somewhere else"

No, certainly not. But a 1-year gap is not the same as a continued period of downtime for a number of years, which is what I thought the question was about.

comment How to get an advisor to finish their part of a publication when they have not done anything on it for over a year?
One bit of further advice then is to give her specific tasks ("edit section 1") and a deadline "by friday or else I'll edit it myself", and so on.

In reference to the second point, it would help if you could give her an external reason for speeding things up. You need to publish the paper for a job application, or at least submit it, and so on... Sometimes that can act as a forcing function: academics work best on deadline.
