We are a sports news website, we use infinite scroll so we have to show multiple articles beneath each other so there are multiple H1 tags in the same page body for multiple articles.
Does it hurt our SEO and confuse google?
What do you recommend to fix it and keep the same design?
Here is an example: http://bit.ly/2lCTMuJ

Hi Haitham,

It's definitly not going to hurt your website SEO for sure. There are few websites that have multiple H1 tag and rank well on Google. Its is also cleared by john mueller in his video (see here).

It is always recommended to have single H1 tag but multiple H1 don't hurt your ranking. Google algorithm are too smart these days so don't worry at all.

There are some theories that include a single H1 as a best practice. 

Of course, those multiple H1 tags must be correctly used. Google does understand those tags and comprehends whether are correctly used. Try using h2, h3 or other, as long as the content requires them.
Your principal concern should be creating exceptional content, not having more than one H1 tag.

What about multiple Tags for one section? In my case, the location of the H1 tag is different from desktop and mobile. Can I either hide one or the other with CSS or would that be critical?
