Only the Petitioner can withdraw an I-129 application for an H-1B visa. However, just because an I-129 application is approved does not mean that the Beneficiary has to work for the H-1B petitioner.

As long as you have an approved L-1 (A or B) visa &/or an approved I-129 petition to support that visa, then you can continue to work for the L-1 Petitioner.
