Changing jobs before Oct while H1b status change of status awaited

Recommended Posts

I am on my F1, and have completed my course and have my OPT for 24 more months. I am working with a known fintech company. My company applied for H1B  (Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker under Change of Status) and it got picked up for processing. 
I want to understand if my Form I-129 gets approved before October 2019 (when the change of status occurs) and if I want to change job before October 2019. Can my next company request/apply for H1B transfer before my visa status change from F1 to H1b?

Essentially, can H1B transfer be requested before H1B status kicks in?

You have to start working on the H1 for the original employer before an H1 transfer is possible.
