What will be my status considered till my H1b Decision happens ? so i can travel to India for my brother’s wedding

If you did OPT before the work on CPT is illegal. You only have 1 year of Practical Training per educational level.

You are out of status, and have to leave the country. Any H1 would only be approved with Consular Notification, and you are unlikely to get an H1 visa. Abuse of CPT kills the future in the US.
