as long as a person has pending h1 extension or h1 transfer they are in valid status.
original poster can transfer to another company without any issues. even if his current employer withdraw his/her extension he/she will be in valid legal status based on the pending h1 transfer (new petition).

It is a bridging issue. If the first employer cancels processing of the extension, and the I-94 is no longer valid, the Service will deem the alien not to have been in valid status when the second H-1 was filed and will therefore not issue I-94s with the approval. The alien will be deemed to have overstayed his visa.
