Default Time limit to transfer a H1-B visa

Folks,

Is there a time limit to transfer a H1-B visa ? If the previous company revokes the H1-B visa how long do we have or is the H1-B canceled at that point ? Please let me know at your earliest.

Your new company must sponsor your H1 before the old company send the request to cancel your H1.
Once revoked, you have probably couple of weeks to pack up. So, its best you get started on the new H1 before the old H1 is revoked.

I dont think there is one (at least legally). However, even if revoked, you may apply for new H1 (without quota bar, if you are within 6 years). The IO may or may not give you a new I94, so you may have to exit the country to get a new visa/I94.
