This paper deals with the continuation of solutions to the generalized Camassa-Holm equation with higher-order nonlinearity beyond wave breaking. By introducing new variables, we transform the generalized Camassa-Holm equation to a semi-linear system and establish the global solutions to this semi-linear system, and by returning to the original variables, we obtain the existence of global conservative solutions to the original equation. We introduce a set of auxiliary variables tailored to a given conservative solution, which satisfy a suitable semi-linear system, and show that the solution for the semi-linear system is unique. Furthermore, it is obtained that the original equation has a unique global conservative solution. By Thom's transversality lemma, we prove that piecewise smooth solutions with only generic singularities are dense in the whole solution set, which means the generic regularity.
