I got my h1b extension approved recently, however my wife's h4 is still in progress. Can I switch employers while her h4 is pending?

Actually I asked the same question yesterday. Someone replied that it’s ok to switch while h4 is in progress. USCIS will continue to process h4 with your previously approved H1.

Hello there! Presently on EB2 and of Indian nationality with Priority date in Aug 2016. Since I am a people manager and we have an office in Toronto, we were looking into getting a PR in Canada and having me work there for a year before coming back to the US on a L1A visa. Thus shortening my GC wait time. However with the recent EB3 retrogression, they are looking into possibly downgrading me to EB3 instead. Which route (L1A or EB3) would be quicker and dependable? How to convince them? Thanks!
