I have current h1 b petition with employer A is valid till september 2017 and i have filed extension with them on normal processing. My h1 b transfer to employer b on premium processing got approved on april 1st. Can i continue to work for same employer A and not move to B
Keep in mind that you didn't file anything, the H papers are the property of the employer, not the employee.
Think about the word 'transfer' ... it means you leave A when B's papers are approved.
Now, if A's petition was amended WITH B's papers for 'concurrent' employment, that would be different and not a transfer.

You will need to transfer to company B as of the date it's H-1B petition is approved. You could only continue working with company A if the petition filed by company B was for concurrent employment.
