As long as it is not filed and approved as COS you can work for company A on L1B.

please consult a lawyer.

 

no, if you apply change of status from L1 to H1 and got your approval, you are no longer on L1 and not eligible to work for company A. you will need to work for company XYZ under H1.

 

you continue to be on L1 while H1 application is pending.

Even though you are out of status a few days will not matter. But, if your cap exempt H1B petition will be filed after last day with L1B employer then your H1B petition will be approved without I94.
