Hello H1B community - I apologize if someone has asked this question already, I tried looking but didn’t find much on the topic. What should I do if my status is expiring in the next month?

I was supposed to go to India in April for stamping but obviously couldn’t given the circumstances. Is anyone in the same boat / have any advice?

Have an h1b transfer/extension question: my H1b was approved under employer A in oct 2019 till sep 2022. Assumption is that I am eligible for an extension in 2022 until 2025. Is this assumption incorrect? I now am switching to employer B and per my transfer petition, my h1b validity is only until April 2024. While it appears like I am losing a year, will employer B still do an extension next year in September where this will be corrected?

I got “verbal” offer from PWC for senior associate/ salesforce developer role. Of course I am not trusting with all my heart but how much should I trust at this point? Does PWC normally extend the offer or are they just telling this to bunch of people and choose in between?
