bike a) 1x11 sram gx complete 10-42 cassette, 30t ring

bike b) 1x11 shimano complete 11-42 cassette, 30t ring

can i take the rear wheel off of bike a and put it on bike b and expect it to shift properly?

It depends on the chain wear between the two bikes and you will most likely have to do some derailleur adjusting to make it shift decent.
