Default Travel outside US during J1 extension and with A H1B in progress

Hello everybody,
I need help on the following matter:

I am in the US on a J1 Visa during its extension period. So if I want to travel outside US in this period I need to get a new J1 Visa stamp on my passport, that means going through the a new consular interview and so on at a US embassy outside the US.
My company has also started the process for getting me a H1B Visa. Now, the big doubt is: if I went outside the US and applied for this new J1 Visa stamp, could the H1B visa process be a problem? Would the US embassy know that my company is applying for it?
