This question already has an answer here:

I am an Indian citizen residing in the USA. I have an expired H1B visa with an approved I-797 until 2021.

I am planning to travel from USA to India with a stopover in London (intend to get my H1B stamped while in India). I have an approved 6-month UK Visitor Visa.

Would i face any problems boarding the flight from USA to London given that I have an expired H1B?

No. The airline won't care about US visas at that point, they'll want to see a valid UK visa. On the way BACK to the US you'll need to show the new H1B
