Default Changing Employer in middle of 8th year with approved I-140

Hi Members,

Could you please give me some pointers. I will be consulting attorney officially, but I'm just trying to understand your thoughts.

I have finished 7.5 years on H1, with I-140 already approved with Employer A. Priority date is 2011. I had gotten H1 extension beyond 6 years because of this I-140 approval.
My H1 is valid for next 1.5 years.

Now, I am getting a job offer from Company B.
Here are my questions ...

#1) I understand there is no issue in H1b transfer from A --> B. Is that correct ?

#2) If no issue, will Company B get the H1 validity for the next 1.5 years (Or) for fresh 3 years ?

#3) If H1 is approved only for next 1.5 years, as long as Company B is willing to re-start my GC process all over again, will there be any problem for them to extend my H1 beyond 9th year ?

Please let me know, Thank you !
