Travelling to India while H1 Extension Pending

My H1b will expire in July, my employer filed petition in April and I received the receipt number.

My question is , can I travel now? or is this mandatory to stay in USA while H1 extension approved? My employer said that he will send the I 797 once the H1 Extension is approved so that I can go for stamping india.

I have an emergency that I must go, and someone told that I should not travel until my extension is approved . Is that the case? Please help!!
