Excellent questions to present to the company's attorney who filed the amendment. It is a part of their representation to advise the company's employees on issues related to the petition. Good luck!

You should discuss these matters with your employer's immigration attorney. If your employer did not use an immigration attorney to file the initial petition, now would be a good time to get one. Working at a new location before approval of an amendment, if one is required, can adversely affect your status. You need good advice on this, and the best place to get it is from your employer's immigration counsel.
These questions should be addressed to, and answered by the employer's immigration attorney who is responsible for preparing and filing the amendment with USCIS.
