If you want to continue with employer A. Ask employer A to file another petition for you as L or if you receive approval for H-1B ak employer a to file H-1B petition for you.

Make sure you have a valid L-1B and that you have tim left for extension of teh status in the future if you prefer to work for employer A on an L-1B status.

You can ask Employer B to withdraw the LCA and send a letter withdrawing the H-1B petition, along with proof that the LCA has been withdrawn and the H-1B receipt so that USCIS can put these together.

Yes. WHy filed. Two stools are sometimes better looking together but not necessarily more conformable to sit on.
