Hopefully your employer will hold your current I140 or else you will have to do PERM and I140 again, but you will maintain the PD.

Thank you @User099. I will be leaving them on good terms - I need to be in India with my parents for few months (medical situation).

After I quit Employer A, will I be able to join another Employer B after spending few months in India? I have obtained 3-year H1-B extension using Employer A's approved I-140. Thanks again.

Adding more details @User099

I am planning to travel around India with my family for 6 months after quitting employer A. Can I join employer A/ employer B after 6-months using my 3-year H1B extension.

You should be able to join a new or same employer after 6 months. In both cases, your employer A/B will have to file for a new H1. If you join a new employer they will have to start the GC process again.
