Ask company lawyer. But here is my opinion.

The H4 EAD is valid until the date shown unless DHS revokes it and sends you notice.

So you have two choices:

1) Apply for H4 EAD renewal again with H1/H4 extension with new employer (costs money $400)
OR
2) Do not apply for H4 EAD renewal now and apply for it 120 days before the current one expires. Unless DHS revokes H4 EAD, the current one should still be valid as long as the H4/H1 status is maintained.

From USCIS FAQs:

6. What happens to my employment authorization if USCIS revokes my H-1B spouse’s Form I-140?

We have the discretion to revoke your employment authorization if your H-1B spouse no longer has an approved Form I-140 or is no longer eligible for H-1B status under sections 106(a) and (b) of AC21. Both you and your H-1B spouse must be maintaining your nonimmigrant status for you to be eligible for employment authorization under 8 CFR 274a.12(c)(26).
