Everything worked fine on my build until Beta 6. Audio is not working.

I reinstall and everything is working perfectly. The only thing I could install last version of Clover boat loader. So I copy the entire EFI folder of Mojave

Everything works just like any other update! Awesome. Just installed latest Lilu.kext
But I have one question although it may be too soon to ask it. Do you think it will stay that way for all the other updates til the release this fall?

Yes! Completely reinstalling Catalina on another partition solved the audio issue, and everything worked. However, for some reason my Mojave partition was affected and would cause a kernel panic when I would try to boot into Mojave. The same happened vice versa when I re-installed Mojave on that partition; the Catalina partition was affected and caused a kernel panic when I tried booting from Catalina. I would suggest installing on a completely different hard drive if you don't want to mess up your main partition.

Public Beta 7 is out, upgrading from 6-7 went smooth. Random crash/reboot are still there on my system, probably due to either not clean installed/beta bug, I am not gonna bother with it until final release.

PS.
It seems the random crash/reboot issue was caused by having the "Put hard disks to sleep when possible." option turned on in System Preferences/Energy saver, probably only happens to system with mechanical drives like dvd drive or non-ssd drive. I always had this option turned on in previous MacOS version without problem.

Installed the latest last night... had to manually select the installer on reboot again, but a successful update with everything apparently still working.

Updated last week - all seems to be fine.

Procedure:

1. Updated Clover
2. Updated all my kexts
3. Reboot
4. Installed beta profile and set Catalina installing.
5. Returned to a Catalina desktop after an hour...

Everything working.
