Default Switch to EAD

Applied for my AOS few weeks back. Once I get my EAD, Can I switch from H1B to EAD and continue working for same GC Sponser in case I am not able to find a job on H1B visa.
(Adjustment is less than 180 days).

Yes you can.
The 180 day rule is to invoke AC 21 and switch employers

Thanks coolpal.
Do they have any risk in keeping me on bench while on EAD compared to H1b?

I should say, compared to H1B, the risks of benching on EAD are far lower.
But I guess there is nothing concrete to prove that you are ok without pay if you work on EAD... so it's always good that your employer pay at least the labor wage if possible.
