Dear Vandana:
you may already have a solution to your problem; however, regarding your concerns:
1) For legit reasons I don't think there would be any issue.
2) You may stay lawfully in the US as long your case is pending.
3) usually takes about 4-6 months; documents requirements are similar to what you may have submitted with your initial H1B. I would suggest you have an in-person consult with your attorney or the attorney of your employer.

Best wishes,
