Can you please tell me what status will I be in in this scenario-

I am on an H4 visa now. My H4 to H1B COS is in process. My spouse has an approved I-140 so if I apply for H4 EAD in the meanwhile, and my H1B is approved first and H4 EAD is approved later,

1. What status will I be in? H4 or H1B?

2. Can I still get an approval on H4 EAD after my H1B approval? Is it possible?

Ans: H1B

Ans: No.

EAD is NOT A STATUS, Its a work permit when one is on H4 visa.
So, once your H1B COS is approved, you are on H1 Visa status, thus, H4-EAD is not valid(even if it gets approved after H1B visa approval)
