H-1 transfer during pending extension

My H-1 extension with the current employer is applied and is pending. My current H1 expires on 25th. If I apply for a transfer to another employer after 25th Sept., then is it necessary to have approved both extension and transfer in order to work with new employer, because I file transfer after my expiration of current H1?

ANSWER: 

If, by the time your second H-1 is approved, the first H-1 is not, USCIS can approve the second H-1 only without an I-94.
