I am planning to quit my job for 4 months because of some health problems. During this time I would like to prepare for PMP and attempt it before I get a new job. Do I need to be working or on payroll of a company to take PMP exam?

No you don't have to be working in a company if you want to apply for the PMP exam, but you need to have a history of project management experience in order to become eligible for the PMP exam. You won't have a problem with your application at all if you have the required project management experience and the 35 contact hours that they need.

Note that you will have to fill references from your old company in your PMP application (these references will only be contacted in case your application is audited), so hopefully you left on good terms!
