I-94 expired , H1-B extension filed before I-94 expiration. Want to change job


Recommended Posts

My i-94 has expired on 1-13-2017 and H1-B extension was applied on 11-18-2016. Currently extension approval is pending (as of 4/30/2017). I want to now change employer. 

1) New employer files for H1-B and I join that company after receiving the H1-B receipt. If my old employer withdraws extension will it affect my current H1-B status as I-94 expired in January.

2) If the new H1-B petition is not approved by 240 days from I-94 expiry will it affect my current status ? Do I have to leave USA in this case?
