Well if you apply for an extension and it is approved, then you are safe. I had applied for B1 extension last year in Jan last week to take part in a rotation in April (I-94 was to expire on march 8th). But the decision did not come through in time and I left in the first week of march. So time might be an issue for you. When you apply for an extension and the decision is pending, you can stay in the US and if the extension is approved, you wont have any problem. But if you stay and wait for decision, and ur extension is denied your B1/B2 is cancelled as you would have overstayed and u need to apply for the visa again in ur home country. If u have a cancelled non immigrant visa due to overstay that could potentially be regarded as red flag when u apply for j1/h1.
Though I left without waiting for the decision, the next time at port of entry I had to go through secondary inspection when I went to give Cs and it was hell.
Just my experience!

Ok.Thank you very much.I have 1 doubt-say I applied extension and stayed after my initial I-94 expiry and leave the country before decision comes as denied.Then is my visa void or still holds good.

Void. Irrespective of the duration you stay after I-94 expiry, if the application is denied you would have overstayed.

in case of h1 visa, there is something called receipt notice which is nothing but an application for extension before the i94 expiry. dont know how it works for other categories like B1 and J1..

But I would like to suggest to you that this question can be better answered in forums like http://www.avvo.com/free-legal-advice
