Hi Folks,
 This is going to be bit longer. Let me give you some background:
I am from India. I moved to US on L1B visa back in 2015. My company filed for GC under EB2 category and got an I140 approved (priority date Nov 2016). I moved out of US in Jan 2019 to Canada on a manager role in the same company. My company filed H1B for me in 2019 regardless that I had already moved to Canada. I got selected in the lottery for H1B in 2019. My H1B needs to be stamped and is valid until Nov 2021. 
Now I have a manager role offer from the same company in US. I am planning to move back to US and want to be able for a EB1C category to get my green card sooner.

I have a couple of questions regarding my case:

1. If I want to apply under EB1C category, which visa is appropriate: L1A or H1B? Are there any drawbacks on using my existing H1B visa?

2. Since I have an approved I140 (priority date Nov 2016), would it be possible to get this EB2 priority date ported to EB1?

3. How long would it take to get my GC card? What if porting is possible?
