Can you transfer H1B to a different employer? How does it work? Would you have to do the entire process again, including getting your case selected in the H1B cap lottery?

Yup can transfer. Don’t need to go through cap lottery.

Pretty straightforward if your qualifications match the new job requirements. No lottery. Process took about 1 month for me total with premium processing.

There is misconception and misinformation out there. Don’t listen to every other willy nilly, all they gonna do is confuse and scare you! You should go ahead apply for the new company if they willing to sponsor your visa (change of employer) & the GC process if you are thinking to stay for more than 6 years on your H1B visa.
