You are not required to work for the H-1B employer if the employment opportunity is terminated. However, if you choose to enter on the H-1B, you are required to immediately start working for the H-1B petitioner.
If you plan on traveling on the B-2 in October, you might want to consider obtaining a letter from the H-1B employer first, addressing the delayed start in employment (just in case CBP questions you). You should be discussing that issue with the Attorney who filed the I-129 on behalf of the employer, though.
