    I was working in H1B and my 1 year period in H1B is still remaining.
    From July 2016 started working in H4-EAD.
    My employer filed I-140, once it got approved i would like to move to H1B status again.
    My question is whether I can travel out of the country and after returning to USA in H4 can i still use by H1 recap for status change or should i file new H1?

    Is it better to change my status to H1B before travelling?
    Is there any time frame involved to use my H1B recap?

    Thanks
    GS

    Either way, you can re-use your remaining H1B time. Time in H4 doesn't count for H1B cap.
