Can I work if my noncap H1b is pending and my OPT expired?

My OPT will expire Oct. 7th. My noncap H1B is still pending right now (just reponded Request For Evidence today ).

Can I still work legally after Oct. 7th if no response is received from USCIS?

Thanks in advance.

yes you can work until you get the decision from the USCIS.



Thanks for your answers. Do you know where I can find related Q&A from USCIS maybe? I just heard contradicting answers from different forums.
