I am currently with employer A and worked for client B and moved back to India.
I am still with A and they have filed H1 amendment to work for client C at a different location and is currently pending with USCIS. Now, I want to take up full time with my previous client B at the same location where I worked before.
Since this is change of employer while my current amendment is pending, will this affect the decision on either i.e. amendment approval or my proposed H1 transfer
Work with client B's, who will be the petitioning company, attorney. If they wish to bring you on board, then they will provide all resources to make the transition smooth. If not, you may want to reconsider joining a company which expects you to invest in online research towards maintaining status.

The immigration attorney of employer A or B will be able to provide you with an accurate response to your questions. Good luck to you.
Yes, your employment with employer B will affect the amendment filed by employer A. You may be able to start work for employer B as soon as it files the Form I-129 Petition for Nonimmigrant Worker for you, but you need to retain an immigration lawyer to review your case in detail and advise you on how to proceed. If you do start work for employer B, you should contact employer A and ask them to withdraw the amendment to work for client C.
