Can I apply for H1b and OPT at the same time while I am on CPT ?


I am on CPT from jan to May. But I am planning to apply for opt and h1b in 2017.

(i) Is it legal to apply for both at the same time ?

(ii) What if my H1b is picked and also If i get OPT then on what status I will be till OCT 2017 as My CPT is from jan to may only.

Please suggest me.
