Is it illegal to work for two companies on two different H1b at the same time? If it’s not illegal then what are pros and cons of it or do you know someone who has done/doing it?

It is illegal

It’s not illegal you need to have a concurrent H1B. Don’t know anyone specifically but the second employer needs to know that the original employer has a H1B filed already. Pros: if you work remotely and can manage two jobs. Cons: difficult when not remote or timelines clashing.
