H4 and H4 EAD different start date

Hello Everyone,

My OPT will expire on 06/05/2019 so I applied for F1-H4 COS and H4 EAD for future effective date 06/04/2019. I received approval for both but USCIS approved my H4 and H4 EAD for different dates.
H4 start date:         06/04/2019  
H4 EAD start date: 06/14/2019 (on both 797 notice and EAD card)

My employer will also be filing for my H1-B on April 1st.

I have two questions now

-Can I get H4 EAD start date fixed before June 4th? if yes, how?  (My original application went to Nebraska and took 5 months to approve)

-If I don't get receipt/rejection on H1 B in before June 4th, Can I still work from June 4th to June 14th? (considering my H1-B is still in process) ?

Any inputs would be of great help. Thanks!

It is only a 10 day difference. You can ignore it. It will take you long time to fix that date.

You cannot work until June 14th if you don't get your H-1 approved. Just take a 1 week leave and you can get back to work on H-4 EAD.
