I heard that to make a travel to South Padre Island -TX , I would be asked for a Valid visa? Do I really need that or else the documents above would be helpful
You never need a valid visa to be in the US. Visas are for travel to the US only. You do need to prove you are in valid status in the US, including the most recent pay stub. Why didn't you just ask your immigration attorney this question?
Domestic travel should be fine. Contact your company's US immigration attorney for assistance.
Is there a reason you will not work with the company's attorney when you have travel questions or other concerns with respect to his/ her filings?

If you are driving , be prepared to present documents verifying your status at the checkpoint in Sarita , Texas. If you are taking a flight to Harlingen or Brownsville, Texas be prepared to also be inspected ( by a roaming border patrol agent) upon arrival or departure. Hence, you should travel with proof of your lawful status. Good luck to you.
If you use the airport in Harlingen you will have to deal with a border patrol officer. They ask everyone boarding flights what their status is.
