Default Change in employer after EB green card

I got my employment-based green card (AOS) few months back. I would like to
go into business as soon as possible. What I have been hearing is that I
must stay with the employer for at least one year after the green card is
approved. However every one says it is not a law but a rule of thumb. They
say that if I leave the job too soon, the employer might inform USCIS and a
fraud inquiry could be launched. Else when I apply for the citizenship, the
USCIS might say that I did not stay in the job for sufficiently long.

What "period to stay in the same job" is being generally advised to green
card holders? Is there really no law, which guides this?

Could someone cite cases where USCIS launched fraud inquiry and successfully
proven the charges?

Have there been cases where the citizenship has been denied on this basis?

Thanks in advance

See http://www.murthy.com/485faq.html#13
The issue is that you must have the good faith intent to work for the employer.
The 6-12 months is really just a way to show that you had the intent.

Ask a lawyer. They are the professionals and have access to case law.

See above.
