country and ask the US immigration officer to extend the validitiy of my i94 by showing the new i797? Also if this is possible, does this require me to travel by air or can I drive back from Canada?

Yes for travel before sept. Just confirm with attorney

Thank you. Will that mean I will remain in status after september despite not having a new stamp in my passport?

The new i797 comes with i94. Doesn’t it?
