Need your advices, please answer to my queries.

 

I got my H1 visa stamped at 2008 Oct, due to my personal reason. I did not travel to US till now,

Now i am willing to travel with same company .

 

Can I extended the same Visa  ? ( even though On the visa the expire is limited to 2011).

Or I should start applying fresh for the cap 2014/5 ? 

 

I heard the petition is valid for 6years, Is this right ?

Yes, you need to travel with a valid H1B visa and I797. You are still eligible for 6 years of H1B.

Thanks jairichi /t75

 

so i need to get the new visa stamping ,

For that i should use this year cap or its 2008 cap reference should be fine ? 

New stamping I am not sure as sometime your new employer might suggest to go for stamping as you have never traveled with your H1B visa stamped with old employer.

You are cap exempt and so you could use the cap subject petition/approval notice of 2008 as reference.
