Default Changing employer in 6th year of H1-B


I have a question regarding changing jobs. I received my H1B in Oct 2010 so my 6th year will end in Oct 2016. My current employer has applied for my green card under EB2 and I have an approved I-140.

At present, I have a H1B extension approved till Jan 2018 (extension based on the I-140). If I have to change jobs now will I be able to transfer my H1-B with a validity till Jan 2018 or will it be till Oct 2016 (when my H1B 6th year ends)?

Please let me know if you have any advise or risks/pitfalls that I may not have thought about regarding changing employers in my present scenario.

I will really appreciate any insights into this. Thanks.
