Regarding my unique case of B-2 and F-1

I applied for a I-539 COS for changing my status from L-2 to F-1 in May 2020 since I turned 21 in October 2020 and couldn't be on a dependent visa anymore. On September 2020. I also applied for another I-539 to change status from L-2 to B-2 so as to "bridge the gap" between the period I turn 21 and the F-1 applications is approved. It is now September 2021 and I haven't received approval for either of the applications. My university needs the F-1 to be approved by December or they will have to cancel my I-20.

Now my question is even if my F-1 doesn't come by December 2021. Can I still live in the United States because my B-2 COS is still pending? Please note currently my L-2 visa has expired due to aging out. My family lives in the USA so can I stay here with them or do I need to go back to my home country?
