You'll probably get your work authorization in a week or two. You can try to change your appointment by calling or getting an infopass appt. Be careful though sometimes date changes do not turn out well due to lack of communication due to scheduling.

It will be most unlikely that you would be able to reschedule the interview for any earlier. They are generally scheduled into the next available slot so it is more than likely that when they got to scheduling your interview the first slot that was available is the one that they gave you. There probably are none earlier - and by the time you went through all of the communications to ask for and receive the answer - it will be March 2nd anyway.

As mentioned above, re-scheduling an AOS appointment is definitely not looked upon with favour by USCIS and is rife with complications. Most people request re-schedules because the assigned date conflicts with something else in their lives. USCIS expects the applicant to change the other thing in their life - not the interview - and aren't too worried if the person is working or overseas or has an exam or what. What has happened a number of times when an interview has been rescheduled - either by the applicant and even by USCIS - is that the application is then denied for failure to attend the original interview. The applicant then has to go through the whole process of getting the file re-opened (after proving that the request for rescheduling was received and acknowledged or originated with them) and then go through the waiting process again.

Your EAD will generally arrive before your AOS interview - usually in about 2 to 3 months after filing for it - so the best plan is to wait until the scheduled date; do what you can to make that date, and use the time between now and then preparing any additional evidence you would like to bring with you to prove the validity of your marriage.

Good luck.
