It’s always better not to have any gaps being on Visa, but you can have 60 days of gap in a given year. Again, I’m not an attorney and would suggest you to check with one.

Can’t you start remotely

No - took 2 weeks off and just started at new job. Also new job approved H1B start date was 9/20 and when I left my old job the previous H1B was valid til December 2021. As long as you’re in status you’ll be fine
