Question

I have an H4 and H4 EAD which is pending from Aug 2020, My current visa period ends by December 2020. My spouse has filed for i-485 for me as dependent based on filing date under Spouse's Priority date. I also have a prior H1 (with an approved i-140), which I am planning to use in case of delay in H4 approval after November. My intention is only to stay in status and continue working legally. We are not planning to file a new i-485 application for me based on my employment. My question is Will the status change from H4 to H1 impact the I-485 filed under dependent category .Is it safe to change the status from H4 to H1 while i-485 is pending.
