Not sure about the US, most live poker roomsites I play in do not allow it unless your cashing out. As the money is still technically in play however; they tend to have the rule you must be gone for 2 hours after a cash out before coming back with less chips.
Some rooms will warn you if you continue you can get banned from them.
Highly bad etiquette if you win big just fold for few hands and cash out is my opinion.
Personally I can't stand it when players show no etiquette.
