Please help,
Have I overstayed the time period authorized on my I-94 form???

I got my visa stamped thru COMPANY A, and my Visa and I-94 was to expire on Sep 2010.

Before my visa expired (on Sep 2010) , I changed my employer to COMPANY B.
Company B applied my visa as Extension and Transfer on Aug 2010 (one month before my first visa was to expire)

In January 2011, I got my visa approved (applied from COMPANY B.)
The visa and I-94 say valid from Dec - 01-2011 TO 2013.

Again I change to Employer (COMPANY C). this time I got the visa to and from the date , which COMPANY C applied.

But I'm worried about the part of COMPANY B's visa. how come my visa and I-94 say valid from Dec - 01-2011 TO 2013. Even though it was applied on Aug 2010?

My question is
My first I-94 ( valid till 20-Sep 2010 )

And second visa and I-94 say valid from Dec - 01-2011 TO 2013.
In this time I was never being out of US. But there's 2 months gap between First visa expiration date and new VISA validity date.

But I joined and start working with the company B from SEP 22, 2010, I'm having proper salary stubs for .these time period.

Was I, out of status for about 2 months in US. ?
Would my case be consider as " overstayed the time period authorized on my I-94 form."

In this situation is it safe to go for visa renewal stamping.
I'm little bit scared now?

I was thinking to apply for visa renewal as Third Country national .
But the consulte website say "Applicants who have not fulfilled the requirements of their non-immigrant status in the United States, having violated the terms of their visas or who have overstayed the time period authorized on their I-94 form; "
CAN NOT APPLY VISA as Third Country Nationals (TCNs) .


My questions :
1. Would I be considered Illegal or overstayed?
2. can I go to neighbouring country (canada\mexico) for visa renewal stamping?

Please help.
