I am a H1B visa holder and have been in US since 2008 to April 2012. I am currently in India from 1-May-2012 -> till day. I have got a stamping in passport till Nov-2013 and my visa is valid till 2014.
I am planning to resign my current job and travel to US as a dependent on H4 visa (My husband is also a H1B holder).
Kindly clarify on the below queries:
1) in case my employer files for a cancellation of my H1B - does it mean I don't have an H1B at all?
2) in case of 1) does it mean if I try to find a job new employer needs to apply for a new H1B against a cap?
3) when I am on H4 will the time be counted against my H1B's timeframe of 6 years?
4) is it advisable to travel on my H1B (have got a client letter valid till June 2012) -> initiate the H4 process immediately once I am in US and then resign?
