I am working now and decided to go to a University that offers CPT from day 1 since my visa is expiring in March. I found out from my own University that if I get my SEVIS record transferred to a new univ(which is a requirement) while on OPT, my OPT will expire on the date of SEVIS release. The release date can be put until 60 days after OPT expires.

The University I am applying to says that the SEVIS must be released before the classes begin after which I can apply for CPT approval. So basically I will be in a situation that I will have no OPT or EAD/Work-Auth for at least 3 weeks.

Since I am working now, it is going to be trouble. I don't know what to do? I am assuming there must be other people in this situation too. Kindly suggest me, I don't have a lot of time

You need to stop working/be taken off of payroll. If your employer is okay with that, then you’ll be fine.
