  • No. If you travel outside you have to stamp a visa in your passport.
    Your change of status was approved which is different from visa.

    Yes, provided that you have valid F-1 stamp. But I guess your COS will automatically become CP after 10/1?

    That would depend on the 'status' with which your employer applied for you. If the status == 'AOS', don't travel. If status == 'Consular Processing', you can travel. Also, talk to your immigration lawyer.

    • AOS - adjustment of status, non immigrant status -> green card.
