Yes it is possible. You don’t have to work for the company that filed the I-140 to get an extension on your H-1. (The employer should not withdraw the I-140). I suggest you file for a H-1 transfer before the employer withdraws the I-140.

Yes you can apply for the TN visa. You can also apply for a H-1b, if you have a bachelors degree, both the TN and H-1 are filed by an prospective employer.

If you are a partner in the company, you will have a problem with the H-1. An H-1 is only for employees. If you do not meet the test of an employee your H-1 is in jeopardy. It would not be a problem if you owned shares in a public company as your employee status would not be jeopardized.

Fresh H-1 is needed. You will get an additional 6 years on your H-1.
Technically speaking you are on H-1 once it gets approved, you are no longer on L-1 visa.
