L1BwithH1B

I am working for a company ABC in US on L1B and had applied for H1B (with COS) through an employer XYZ in April 2016 which I got in lottery and I am waiting for Approval notice.

 

Now my queries are:

I am working for a company ABC in US on L1B and had applied for H1B (with COS) through an employer XYZ in April 2016 which I got in lottery and I am waiting for Approval notice.

 

Now my queries are:

1. I need to go to India asap due to my personal reasons (on vacation or for good), so will it affect my H1B processing?

2. What if I go back to India after getting my H1B approval but before October 1st, so will it still void my COS as I have moved out of US without changing my status to H1B?

3. What if my employer XYZ refuses to provide me my H1B Approval Notice (I797), so can I still transfer my H1B using just the Receipt Number I have?

4. Is my H1B employer XYZ legally supposed to give me i797 approval notice?

5. If I go back to India now and next year I go for H1B stamping in India so can I hold 2 valid visas at a time (L1b from my current employer and H1B from my new employer whom I will join)?

6. Can consulate cancel my existing L1B while issuing me H1B?
