Your I-94 governs your status in the US.

J Charles Ferrari Eng & Nishimura 213.622.2255 The statement above is general in nature and does not constitute legal advice, as not all the facts are known. You should retain an attorney to review all the facts specific to your case in order to receive advise specific to your case. The statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship. Answers on Avvo can only be general ones, as specific answers would require knowledge of all the facts. As such, they may or may not apply to the question.

You should receive an EAD through 3/13.

Your visa stamp date is not important (as long as you don't travel internationally) it is the I-94 and your I-129L approval that are important. The date of expiration will depend on what date was written on the I-129L application.

You should get the extended EAD to March 2013. The visa is only an entry document and does not govern the length of your stay in the U.S. The I-94 does that, and the EAD can be issued for the time left on the I-94.
