There is guidance indicating that you should be able to travel while an amendment is pending if you have a valid H1B visa in your passport and the receipt notice for the amendment. However, we cannot entirely rule out the possibility that a CBP officer at the U.S. port of entry might deny admission without the H1B amendment approval notice. (03.Aug.2022)
