Default Job change porting priority date for GC

Good Morning,

I would like to ask some questions about changing jobs. I am currently on a second H1-B, and have applied for a green card (Form I485, APPLICATION TO REGISTER PERMANENT RESIDENCE OR TO ADJUST STATUS). The company’s attorney sent me the following form as a receipt: I797C application to adjust to permanent resident status.

If I decide to join a new company, what do they have to do? Can I change jobs keeping my current H1-B? Do they apply for another H1-B and then restart the green card process? What documents are required to port my current priority date?

Thank you for your answer.
