H1B Transfer - Consular Processing while on F-1

Recommended Posts

I am on F-1 visa with H1-B approved for current employer through consular processing. I have not traveled out of US and nor have I got H1-B stamped. I am still working on my F-1 Visa STEM OPT (12 months remaining) 
Now, I have alternate offer. Does my new employer just follow the H1-B normal transfer process? If yes, will that be consular to consular OR consular to change of status?
If my transfer is consular to consular, do I need to get my visa stamped before starting to work for new employer?
