Yes you would need a stamped H1b because it usually becomes effective Oct 1 for F1 to H1 transfer. You can get it stamped anywhere, but usually people say it's best to get it in your home country in case you get stuck because of processing delays(221g).

Does anyone have any recommendations for a single pane of glass bank I can use to manage everything from a single login?

From my research it looks like either Chase or Charles Schwab are the best bets, but no HYSA for either.
