I am on the H1-B visa. Do I need an H1-B amendment to move/relocate to a new location to work? I have approved EAD based on approved I-140 and pending I-485 based under the EB1-C category. Please advise.
A change in the place of employment can be a "material" change and require a new or amended LCA/Petition, but there are also exceptions. However, in your situation, there is no need to maintain your H-1B nonimmigrant status if you have an approved I-140, unless there are serious doubts that the I-485 will be approved. You have "authorized stay" in the U.S. based upon the pending I-485 and authorization to work with the approved EAD until the "green card" is approved.
Yes, if you wish to maintain H-1B status.

I agree with my colleagues. It is in your best interest to have an immigration attorney who is familiar with your file and can advise you as you proceed in the process.
