Default H1 transfer question

My H1 with Employer A expires Dec 2009 (7th yr). By that time, if my I140 gets approved (with Employer A) I will be eligible for 3 year extensions from there on. Employer A is willing to keep the I-140 current even if I leave them. Now my question is,

* If I change to Employer B's H1 prior to I-140 approval with employer A, am I eligible to apply for 3 yr extension when I am with Employer B?

Can I transfer from Employer B back to Employer A (if my priority date for I-485 becomes current) when I am on the 3yr extension?

The reason I ask is, if my Priority date becomes current and apply for the I-485, I do not want to use my EAD card. I want to be on H1 to be on safe side (incase anything happens to I-485)

Any help is greatly appreciated.
