You may apply for any relief you are eligible. Now it takes from 60 to 90 days to get an EAD after you file I-765.
If you are fully eligible and qualified for TPS you can proceed to make such a request. You can also continue pursuing the request for a asylum on a concurrent basis.
You may pursue TPS while your asylum application is pending. Nothing will happen to your asylum case. TPS is a completely separate immigration relief. Your asylum application will remain pending until a decision is made or you withdraw the application.

IF TPS is available (consult an attorney) then you can apply for both. However, TPS does not confer status, whereas asylum leads to it. TPS does not give you an authomatic privilege to work either. You need to focus your attention on the asylum case which is avery difficult standard to meet.
For asylum you should also hire an attorney if you do not have one already. An attorney will do the following:
1. Amend your application so it meets the legal standard - do you know what it is?
2. Submit documents and declarations to meet the legal standard - you can't just walk into the asylum office and tell a story. That fast-tracks you to the immigration court
3. Attend the interview and, most importantly
4. Make arguments after the interview that can make or break a difficult case
Pro per asylum applicants fail at an alarming rate. If you don't have an attorney you may as well prepare for voluntary departure, or expect to pay at least three times as much fighting deportation.
