i have applied few days before H1B expiry and mine got 240 days completed with I94 expiry date by waiting on H1B status. I heard there are chances I94 wont be attached even though approval of H1B. Looking for all the options in those scenarios. Your answer would help.
My previous I94 was there till 2017 mine is H1B transfer just change of status..
In your case I would suggest to upgrade premium at the earliest or else you will suffer like me.. refer my case I have waited 370 dates even I have valid visa and I94 but your case is more critical visa and i94 expired move it to premium at earliest
