          As far as I know, Its never good to take chances. Think about what happens if OPT is denied? So It never good to take chance but if you are confident enough just go ahead

            9.4.2.Can a student travel outside the United States during a cap gap extension period and return in F-1 status?

            Yes, provided the student has a valid EAD. See 8 CFR 214.2(f)(13). A student may choose to leave the United
            States and obtain an H-1B visa to return to the United States to assume H-1B employment. SEVP recommends that a student not travel outside the United States during the cap gap extension, if possible, as USCIS will consider a change-of-status application to be abandoned if the applicant leaves the country while the application remain s pending. Thus, a change-of-status petition from F-1 to H-1B filed on behalf of a student with a cap gap extension who departs the United States before the application is adjudicated could be denied.
