Legal Question in Immigration Law in Rhode Island

I am currently on my last month of OPT. My wife (a US citizen) and I just mailed in our application for my green card. My question is, am I allowed to continue working with my current job (on my OPT) or do I have to quit while waiting for the new EAD that comes with the green card to process? Thanks!
