Your H1-B can be extended for 1 year.

as long as your gc is pending, you can get 1 year extension. After 140 approval and 485 still pending you can get 3 year extension. OR you can apply for EAD to continue in status.

My 9th year H1B will expire in two days. My I-140 is still pending with TSC. I've sent my papers for H1B renewal. Hoping to get an extension till March 2010.
Hang on...I-140 approval is the key for 3 year H1B extension and 2 year EAD extension.
