Default Allowable stay on h1b after quitting my job

I am on my 2nd phase of H1B visa which is valid until 2012.
I want to quit my job and go back to my home country.
How long after I quit my job do I get to stay here to wrap up and ship my stuff??
Does that jeopardize my status? I plan to be here for about 30 days after quitting my job. WOuld that be ok? or is it overstaying?

If I ever need to apply for a tourist visa in future will this jeopardize my chances of getting a visa then?

Thank you!

You have no grace period for staying after your H1-B status becomes invalid (which I believe would happen when you quit your job).

Default Quit

Take one month unpaid vacation. Packup your things. Send family home. Work for one or two weeks(stay in a motel or with friends), resign and go same day or next day.
This will reduce your anxiety about your future.
