    You are not allowed to work during the appeal and are also not in legal status during the appeal. There is lot of risk involved as appeals can take 8-12 months and you accumulate unauthorized presence during that period which can potentially lead to 3 or a 10 year ban in the future if the appeal does not result in success.

    If the appeal was fruitful, then you will be fine. If not, you should plan on leaving before you hit the 180 day mark since your denial which kicks of the ban.

    Talk to your attorney.

    NO.

    You must have received instructions on when to leave with denial. If not, you have to leave immediately after denial.

    WHAT are you talking about??? Backdating your approved visa dates? I'm shocked!

    Moreover, H1 visa are approved only starting with the fiscal year ie. 01OCT.
