H1B - extension includes the L1 dates as well

Hi, 

 

I had come to USA on L1B visa in Nov 2007 and left to India in Aug 2010. 

I stayed in India for 4 years and got my H1B visa approved on May 2014. I traveled to USA in Sep 2014. 

 

After 6 months in March 2015 I changed my employer and when they filed my extension, in I-129 they have calculated the days for L1B stay and H1B stay.

 

The extension was given for the left over days (6 years - total stay in USA).

 

Does it mean that my first H1B petition was on top of L1B Petition or my second employer calculated it wrongly?

 

Since there was a gap of 4 years between L1 and H1, shouldn't My H1 should be a fresh one?

 

Please help me understand how many days I can stay on my H1.

 

Thanks in advance.
