Can I postpone H-1 status

Currently I'm on L-1A status and it expires in *** hence my employer is planning to file new H-1B this April not change of status. Here are my questions...
1) If I get H-1B this April, is it mandatory to work on H-1B from Oct 01, 2015?
2) Shall I continue with L-1A status until it expires and then can I change to H-1B?

H-1 Through Multiple Employers

I am planning to apply for H-1 through multiple employers. What are the precautions I need to take. I have my project end date in August, one of my employer will be representing with my current job. Will it be a problem later if the client details does not match ?

If you are a quota applicant, you can apply through as many unrelated companies as you like. Do not be a party to any misrepresentation.
