How do I know whether an approved h1b petition has been withdrawn? It doesn't say online at USCIS website that H1B has been withdrawn.
If USCIS does send you letter of withdrawal of H1B, what form will it be on? I797 or normal letter telling H1B revoked. I received a letter about automatic revocation which was filed which was filed by employer and it doesn't say my Alien number.
I agree with my colleagues.

There is really no way to tell from USCIS whether the I-129 has been withdrawn. To my knowledge, USCIS hardly ever acknowledges such a withdrawal. That is why instruct my clients to send a withdrawal via certified mail, with return receipt requested and keep the copy in the former employee's "Public Access" file.
For an H-1B withdrawal to become effective and release the employer from its responsibilities, I also instruct the employer to withdraw the Labor Condition Application (LCA) it previously filed with DOL, failing which, EMPLOYER'S wage payment obligations could be deemed to continue for the LCA's validity period. It is also nearly impossible to know from DO
whether an LCA has been withdrawn or not, unless one attempts to contact DOL via email.
