I am on H1B for more than 6 years and planning to move on H4 EAD.For this,Can I directly move from H1 to H4 EAD so I can avoid gap.Or I have to move from H1 to H4 and later move to H4 EAD which will make me not authorize to work for 3 months.My client is fine with moving status but not with a break.Does any one have idea please..

Since your status is H1B, you should concurrently file for H4 and H4 EAD. But, H4 EAD will only be processed only after H4 is approved. There may be a gap (could be very few days, if lucky) between H4 and H4 EAD approvals. You should immediately stop working the day your H4 gets approved, until you get H4 EAD approval.
