Changing jobs before Oct while H1b status change of status awaited

Recommended Posts

I am on my F1, and have completed my course and have my OPT for 24 more months. I am working with a known fintech company. My company applied for H1B  (Form I-129, Petition for a Nonimmigrant Worker under Change of Status) and it got picked up for processing. 
I want to understand if my Form I-129 gets approved before October 2019 (when the change of status occurs) and if I want to change job before October 2019. Can my next company request/apply for H1B transfer before my visa status change from F1 to H1b?

Essentially, can H1B transfer be requested before H1B status kicks in?
