I have my H1-B VISA Expiration date as SEP2014. My Orginal I-94 Expiry date is Oct'2014 when I entered US for first time. But last time when I went for a vacation and came back to US at march 2013, in port of Entry my admit until date(I-94) is sealed by officer as 01FEB2014. That time my passport expiry date was 01FEB2014, so i thought that might be reason he is sealing the I-94 as 01FEB2014.

Now I have got my new Passport and I travelled out of country for a vacation. So If i have to travel back to US, Do I still need to be in before 01FEB2014 or can I come after that as I have my actual VISA Expiration date as SEP2014.

In my opinion; as long as you have valid visa stamped in your old passport showing the date as SEPT 2014 you will be allowed to enter after Feb 1 2014. Please make sure you carry the old passport as well on you.

I have traveled with a new passport and old passport that contained the stamped visa. So, you should be fine, in my opinion.

Same here. I entered couple of years back with old and new passports. The visa was in old passport. There were no issues at PoE.
