H4 EAD Application Queries

I am applying for my spouse’s H4 EAD. I have two questions.

  1. I had my i140 approved in 2018. I wanted to check the status (it has not been revoked but just wanted to confirm). The status search on the USCIS site returns “case was sent to the department of state”. Does it in a way mean the i140 is still valid?

  2. Recently I moved into a different subsidiary of the same employer but technically a different legal entity. I got my H1B amended, and my spouse got H4 based on that. Will the original i140 which carries the name of the previous legal entity (say “A” while my current employer on H1B is “B”, although both are just different subsidiaries of the same company) pose any challenge?
