You will have no status for that time, and therefore, cannot do as you plan unless you will leave the U.S. and come back on the H-1B Visa.

You will likely need to leave the US and return after consular processing for the October 1 start date on the H-1b. If you do plan to file for the H-1b, you need to prepare it now for filing on April 1.
