The correct answer would be differed on the basis of your current status.
Are you currently H1 holder or H4 holder?

what H1 and H4 has to do? Once you start using EAD..your current status has no impact. On EAD, you can do multiple jobs but similiar description.

After EAD is approved, H4 can work anywhere in any job.

You must first get into EAD status by filing form I9 with your employer. After that you can do a second job part-time or weekends / online etc using ur EAD. EAD allows open employment for your second job - not necessary to be the same as ur current full time job.

H4 holders after getting EAD must apply for SSN. After getting SSN they can do any job full time or part time.

O.K. Once you get EAD being a H4 Visa holder you can do multiple jobs in multiple field as you were having H4 status. But now if you are having H1 status then you can do multiple jobs with all jobs having similar description to the job description for what your original employer filed your green card (485).

Now real question should be "Should I use EAD or Should I be on H1/H4?"

If U choose to use your EAD than from that moment your H status expires. In normal circumstances you would not care. But in reality your 485 process will still continue for years and say unfortunately something bad happen to your 485 process and get denied then you will have one choice that is to leave USA. But if you have maintained your H status not using EAD then in that kind of scenario you still keep working and staying in USA.

If I-485 is rejected, can you switch back to H4 from EAD without going out of USA?

The moment you use your EAD to get a part time job even you still are working fultime job, your H status is suspended. You can still work with your employer who filed your GC not in H status, but with EAD.

In other words, you can only be in one status at any time. You cannot have H status and work on EAD at same time.

They would have to leave US and re-enter on H-4 visa to be on H4

If I-485 is rejected, can you switch back to H4 from EAD without going out of USA?

I think you need seperate EADs for each jobs. 2 jobs means 2 EADs..:confused:

Common, You can do any number of jobs with ONE EAD. If you don't invoke AC 21, then why are you worrying about Job Description???

As per my knowledge you may be able to change status while remaining in US.. you may do that with Form I539. Check out this form and read through all categories. To make sure consult an attorney.
