        Technically there isnt a "transfer" of H1. The new employer files their own cap exempt H1 petition and if approved you can work with them from approval date till their I-94 expiry OR choose to continue working with current employer till current employer I-94 extension. Remember each employer has own petition and each petition has its own I-94. As long as you dont work for two different employer at the same time, as long as you are working with the employer whose I-94 is active, as logn as there is not gap between End Date of one I-94 and Start date of another I-94 you should be fine.

        This is my opinion not legal advice.
