Question

My Visa status is H1B Situation - I lost my job and my last official date with my previous employer was Sep 17, 2020. I accepted a new job offer and they have filed my H1B transfer with receipt date of Sep 29, 2020 and the H1B petition is still being processed. The earliest start date my new company can have me start is Oct 12, 2020 or even later. Had few questions - 1. When does the 60 day H1B countdown end - on my start date OR the USCIS receipt date? 2. Is it okay if there is gap between the USCIS receipt date (Sep 29) and my actual start date with the new company (Oct 12 or later) while I'm unemployed or will there be concerns? 3. Would this be an issue when I submit my employment history for my green card application with the new company showing that I did not have a job from Sep 17 to Oct 12?
