My I-140 has just been approved but I am stuck outside the US due to visa appointment cancellations. I have 6 months left on my H1-B visa. Does the I-140 approval help me in anyway with visa extension?

You can renew your H1B for 3 year increments till your priority date becomes current. Not sure how it works if you are outside the country or if your date is current. I dont think it will help you get a visa stamping appointment since H1B & green card processes are not interlinked

Yes you will be able to get extensions now, but getting a stamping appointment is an independent issue.

My background check is taking forever and now they are asking me to provide my letter of separation for a job I held 7 years back.

For ref for both my last jobs (in US) it was seamless.
