Do I need to renew h1b or not if already filed i-485?

Hello all,

My status:

  • My h1b visa will be expired on 8/31/2017

  • I will have biometrics appointment on 8/28/2017

  • I haven’t get EAD. I think I may receive it in early October, 2017.

My question is, am I able to work after my H1b expired and before received EAD card?

Do I need to renew H1b?
