how do life steal and skills work together?

Witch Doctor
can +life on hit or life steal % of damage work with DoTs? I know that it works with the primary skills, but im wondering if i can steal life if i put locust swarm or haunt on an enemy. And while on the topic of DoTs, is a DoT WD (with locust, haunt, and acid) better or a direct nuke WD better (with skills like barrage and bats). Thanks!
+life on hit works on dots, as thats how i tanked 3 man normal ACT 3 onwards. double aoe poison and you basically can't die in a group fight.

life steal % should work on all damage but i haven't tried it out yet
