She has nothing to worry about in many cases here when someone gives 6 months notice they are often asked to stop coming into the office and to proceed on gardening leave, in other words a holiday and paid.

Though possible, a case like this depends on a number of factors... replacement, work load, attitude, etc. Yes, they could be "fired" in the form of sent home with pay for the remaining period of their contract as Wallabies mentioned. But, this could also reflect on how the company words the outgoing letter.
My thoughts are: Your friend should be a little more concerned with this letter of recommendation and how it is written. The time during the resignation time is especially important to how the letter is written. Sure, the letter can be rejected if the employee is not in agreement... which leads to a Arbeitsbestätigung, meaning they will receive a letter stating the dates that they were employed by the company... no comments, nothing. Which, could (not "would") have an affect on future interviews for employment.
If I were this friend, work... as usual before the resignation. If they get relieved of their duties and are sent home with pay for the remaining time of the contract... great!
If sent home with pay, they should not work during this period, unless the old employer is informed AND agrees... in which they may be released from the contract early - without further pay. If they are caught working for another company during the period in which they are still employed and paid by the first company... that could lead to pay back of all monies involved - full wages plus all social payments (IV, AHV, pension, etc).
