I am currently in year 6 of my H1B (including recaptured time) with my visa expiring on June 20th. My lawyers have applied for I-140 last month but since premium processing is suspended, we had to apply with normal processing. I don't expect the I-140 approval to come in before my H1B expires. I have applied for change of status to H4 since my spouse also has an H1B visa. I am currently in the USA. I had a few questions about my situation.
1. Once my I-140 approval comes in (after my H1B has expired), my employer's lawyer will apply for H1b extension. Will that be cap exempt?
2. While waiting for change of status (to H4), if I quit my job/take leave of absence, can I recapture the time on H1b when I was not working (if I am still inside the USA)
