H4 travel when H1 transfer is pending
I recently moved to new employer and my H1 transfer is still pending. Me and my spouse have valid visa till June(2020) from old employer. Currently my spouse is in India and traveling to USA during February (2020) with existing H4(from previous employer which is valid till June 2020)
Can she travel when my visa transfer is still in progress?
Will she face any issues at Port of entry? What if the immigration authority ask where your husband works( means she should mention old or new employer or say visa transfer is in progress)

The H4 spouse may travel to the US when a H1 visa transfer is still in progress and apply for H4 extension on arrival.
