[Q] May I submit H-1B non-immigrant petition at the same time I submit I-526 immigrant petition?


Yes, legally speaking, neither petition will be adversely affected by the other. This is because H-1B nonimmigrant petition is a "dual" immigrant and nonimmigrant intent -- that is H-1B petitioner may possess an immigrant intent as shown by the submission of I-526 immigrant petition.
