Grace period after voluntarily quitting on H1B?

Hi everyone. I have been on the H1B with a stamped visa in my passport since Oct 2020. I am planing on quitting my job this month, and had a few questions -

  1. Am I able to stay in the US legally for 60 days to wrap up things here after quitting the job? There seem to be mixed opinions on this and it’s causing quite a bit of confusion.

  2. Will I be able to apply for jobs from my home country and refile without going through the lottery? I consulted with a lawyer who mentioned I may be able to keep my H1B petition number for 6 years starting the initial approval date.

TL;DR - what is the grace period on h1b if an employee is resigning rather than being terminated and is there any difference?

Thank you so much for your help!
