It is always advisable to state accurately what has been filed and your intent in applying for residency status. Applying for an extension of H status should not affect the I-526 process or vice versa. The I-526 petition is not the same, as you are applying for permanent residency status. The H status has dual intent which means you can be pursuing both a non-immigrant visa and an EB-5 immigrant status.
