I am currently on OPT EAD which is valid until 2019 December and employed in my related field. I am planning to Travel to India after filing for H1B on April 2nd 2018. I have a few questions:

1) What happens to my H1B if I travel in April or May (after filing for H1B), would my H1B application be abandoned?

2) If travel is allowed, What is the recommended time for travel?

Is it safe to travel in this situation? What is the recommended time for travel in this scenario? Any advise is greatly appreciated. 

Thank You!
