Hi, I'm currently holding an H1B and am transferring it to another company, both in California. My question is that since my start date at the second company is several months away, can I leave my job after the transfer has been approved and take a vacation until my start date with the other company?
"Once your H1 transfer is approved, there is no joining time limit. It is totally up to you, when you want to report to work for the new Company"
There is no clause on whether I can quit my first job weeks/months before my start at company B. I'm asking the question since technically during the vacation I'm not being employed or paid (in between jobs) and most of the rules for the H1 visa points to being employed and paid to be "in status".
