Can you quit the old company before the new company starts the H1B transfer? They advised not to, but I want to go home and chill

I did the same. We have 60 days grace and I am chilling

I would check with the new company’s immigration team. In my case, they mentioned specifically that I and any immediate family members need to be the US at the time of filing of the yransfer

I was advised not to until the new employers immigration has filed everything and they tell me I should hand in my two week notice. There is always a chance of a h1b transfer being rejected so don't take the risk

^ this. You can take a couple weeks off in between jobs, which is generally considered fine.

Looking to resign in about a month. Really need a mental break from the corporate world. I’ve amassed about 2-3 years worth of salary in my investments to hold me through for however long. How bad is it if I took 6-18 months off to pursue hobbies and possible other career paths (content creation/vlogging) while being unemployed before applying to another job in industry? TLDR; I’m about to quit, how bad does a 6-18 month employment gap look when looking to apply again to the workforce?
