If I quit my job, an I still on a legal status in the USA before I get my EAD. My EAD should arrive hopefully in 90 days.

if you have filed a greencard, you can quit your h1b job, and not be out of status for immigration purposes, once you receive your EAD you would be able to work anywhere, even if the employer terminates your h1b visa, since you have applied as a spouse, your status would not hurt your application.
