Default Coming to USA on employer's B2 visa and then B2 to H1B change of status

I've visited USA on my employer's B1/B2 visa recently and it is valid upto Oct, 2012. Also, my H1B work permit is in process currently. My husband is already working on H1B.
* Can I come to US on my B2 visa (sponsored by my husband) and then, change the status from B2 to H1 in October ? Or, Is it safe to come to US only on H4 visa ?
* Will there any problem for H4 stamping when H1 is already in process ?

Not good to come on B2 when a H1B petition is pending.
B2 the intention is visiting but at POE their system may detect that an H1B petition is pending.

Sometimes one can get away, but if sent for secondary inspection one can be denied
entry.
The safest is H4 visa. H1B would not impact the H1B petition.
