I’ve been in toxic work environments. However, I’ve learned to always have another job lined up or another supplemental source of income. Being unemployed is very difficult.

Exactly right, explain why you're leaving in advance, in some cases a good manager may seek to retain an "overlooked" very good employee, offer of increased salary, new position etc can occur, as a former employer my team went above and beyond to retain proven top performers when possible. Never be afraid to out perform others in the work place

When I quit my most recent job, it was due to moving out of state after getting married. My boss was happy for me, but disappointed at the same time. She said she needed a letter of resignation for the file. After I wrote it, she said it was the nicest one she ever read and that it made her cry.

That’s wholly dependent on what’s unfolding. If you’re being subjected to harassment/retaliation, then it may not be wise to tip your cards. I have that experience.

Never burn bridges. Then you can't go over them again

It's important to always be nice. You never know how people come back into your life, for better for worse. AND it's the right thing to do.
