Whether the employer files as amendment plus extension, or just extension, depends on the facts of the case. In either case, premium processing is temporarily suspended unless filed as continuation of previously approved employment without change.
In general, the pending amendment should not be withdrawn prematurely if you have already started working per the terms of the amended petition rather than waiting for approval.

You don't file an H-1B petition nor an amendment or extension. It is filed by an employer and their attorney advise on the process.
