Won’t that mean you will have access to both companies’ resources? That may be a legal issue?

Why would you even do that? Take time off in between jobs. Enjoy your vacation and chill

If I give back my equipment before i take my vacation, phone laptop etc

I know many people who have done this. It’s an ethical dilemma for you to choose. Lots of people will overlap jobs for 2-4 weeks sometimes even to just make sure they like the new one. If you are taking vacation (which the company would have to pay you out anyway) then I see what you are proposing as nothing wrong.

Why don’t you just shorten your notice period by cashing out your vacation instead?

You must be in the U.K. too 😁 Find the vacation accrual calendar in w3 - search for benefits. That will tell you your leave entitlement based on leaving date and give you how much you can ask to cash. We do not get 25 days up front, we accrue.
