Your H4 is a valid travel document until your change of status becomes effective.

Thanks for the reply shankar,
I read in the multiple posts that COS will become abandoned if i travel outside US when my h1 application is under processing. could you please share your opinion on this. If yes can i apply COS once i am in USA without going for h1 stamping
