Unfortunately, once your husband changes status to H-1B, your L-2 status will no longer be valid & thus your EAD will not be valid, either. (You should have filed an I-539 along with your husband's I-129 for the change of status, too).

Although there has been a proposal to permit H-4's to apply for EADs, the law has not been changed yet. Therefore, once you change status to H-4, you will not be able to work (for now anyway).
