There is on h-node only Intel HD 630, but there is not Intel UHD 630.

Please, does Guix work on Core i5 9400 with Intel UHD Graphics 630 ?

Intel is providing an open source drivers for their integrated GFX chipsets that are integrated in to the main-line Linux kernel source.

This is the kernel documentation:
This is the official Intel website:

Unfortunately they are using proprietary firmware. Guix by default is using the Linux-libre kernel which is stripping all these non-free BLOBs (at least some time ago when I last checked).

The official Intel firmware information page: The BLOBs living in the kernel source tree:

So to make the integrated card work with its full potential you will need to enable the usage of the binary firmware blobs. I'm not sure how well it will be working without the binary firmware BLOB. See for example this discussion:
