Yes, you can under AC-21 portability. I'm assuming that you were in valid status (i.e. getting paid regularly) when Y filed for change of employer.

You may find the following link useful in determining if you are eligible to start working for your new employer prior to approval of the H1B petition: http://www.murthy.com/news/n_h1pop2.html.

If you would like to discuss your specific circumstances in more detail it is advisable to speak directly with a qualified U.S. immigration attorney. The Murthy Law Firm has a very well-regarded H1B Department with extensive experience who would be able to provide you with excellent assistance.
