H1B transfer while premium processing is suspended

Recommended Posts

I am working with company A and got an offer from company B.
B is filing my visa transfer in regular process as USCIS temporarily suspended premium processing.
I told company B that I'll only join once H1B transfer get approved. I'll still be an employee of company A till then.
So, I have below questions:
1) During the visa transfer process which may take 4-6 months, in case I need to travel international, can I still travel? Since, I'm still employee of company A (visa valid till 2021) and transfer application with B is still pending with USCIS?
2) H4 application for spouse can only be filed after my H1B visa approval with company B processed? I have to take care of her H4 visa application on my own. Company B won't file H4 transfer.
3) Spouse H4 EAD extension can still be filed with current H1B approval notice from company A and pending H1B transfer application with company B?

Thanks,
Aarav
