Hi - I am on 7th Year of my H1. My I-140 has been approved. My I-485 is pending for while plus my PD is not current as of Jan 09. In this case...

a) Am I eligible to apply for H1 extension (I don't want to use EAD)?
b) If Yes, will I get 1 Year or 3 Years?

Thanks for your help...

Yes, you can apply for H1 extension when I-485 is pending

b) If Yes, will I get 1 Year or 3 Years?

Once I-140 is approved, you will get an extension for 3 years.

Thanks for your help...
