But it doesn't look like I can run a business or anything with visa restrictions. Research pending.

You definitely cannot run a business on an H1B... You can't even work a second job. It's totally illegal and basis for termination and deportation.

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?

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?
