I’m working for company A who file my H1b (working remotely). Now I have offer from company B and company B is asking me to join on receipt, if I want to work for both company can i work without transfer? Or while transfer is going till that time can I work for both the employer?
I Just want to be on safer side till my complete visa transfer from company B.
The only way to work for two H-1 employers is if you work part-time (20 hours or less per week). Both LCAs and I-129s must be filed for part-time. You need to discuss this with your immigration attorney. That is what they are being paid for.
If you have the stamina and the ambition to work two full-time (35+ hours per week) jobs as per associated H1B petition of each employer, there is no violation of status but be aware that part-time employment is possible if specified as such on the H1B petition.

It will not be that simple. You will need to have both employer on board with your plan as their (each) petition will have to state the facts.
