      Hi Eva,

      1) You should consult your attorney on this. There might be some limitations what you may or may not do using an EAD.
      2) EAD allows you to work legally, however your future depends heavily on the outcome of your husband's I-485 filing. You are currently an adjustee derivative from your husband's case.
      3) H-1B is a safety net for your husband while I-485 is pending. Therefore, he should try to maintain H-1B status as long as possible.
      4) As far as I know, your use of EAD does not cancel your husband's H-1B status. His use of EAD does cancel his H-1B status.
      5) Just curious: when and where was your husband's I-485 filed?

      Hope it helps. Good luck.

        You can start your own business and be a self-employed person. EAD is actually required if you work for others. It is upto you whether you want to form a Corporation or DBA.
        Good luck.

          To be self-employed you don't need an EAD at all.
