I am from Nepal and My employer is processing GC under EB2

Customer Question

Hello, I am from Nepal and My employer is processing GC under EB2 category for me.
I have got my PERM and then I-40 approved last week. My problem is my 6 year H1-B will be expiring soon on Nov-13. The problem is I-485 processing takes 3-4 months. and I just have 1 month before my h1 expires.
1)Can I get an extension for my H1-b for 7th year with approved I-40 even though EB2 visa is current for ROW?
2)If not what is the next possible solution to tackle my problem?
3) DO I have to leave the country after H1B expires? Can I come back as soon as I-485 gets approved
