I have an I-485 pending based on approved EB-1 petition. Already working under the EAD (applied with I-485 and approved a few months ago). Will maintain my joy with the current employer.
Since you have the EAD and you will maintain your job with your current employer, it's okay to work an extra job.
If you are working full-time for your employer, your Uber work on the side will be cause a problem

Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
As long as you are fulfilling the requirements and already working full-time for your petitioning employer, you can afford to "moonlight" and work for either Uber or Lyft evenings and/or weekends.
