    Your First Question: Article 56(1): the President may, by writing under his hand addressed to the
    Vice-President, resign his office

    Your Second Question: (I would quote this verbatim)
    While Justice Mohammad Hidayatullah
    was holding the post of Chief Justice of India, the then Acting President of India, late V.V. Giri, tendered resignation in order to contest the Presidential Election. Justice Hidayatullah was thereupon sworn in as the Acting President of India on 20th July 1969 and served in that capacity till late V.V. Giri was sworn in as the duly elected President of the Republic. After his retirement as the Chief Justice of India, he was unanimously elected as the Vice President of India as a result of a consensus amongst different political parties and occupied that high office with distinction from 1979 to 1984. As Vice President, he presided over the Rajya Sabha and conducted its proceedings with great dexterity and wisdom. During his tenure as Vice President, he again acted as the President in 1982.
