Working during notice period for other employer

Hi EF employment experts!

Here's a couple of questions that have recently become of interest to me due to the unfortunate circumstances of a friend of mine. Can anyone be of help?

1. Is it illegal to work for two employers at the same time in Switzerland? (i.e. are you allowed to have several employers at the same time in this country?)

2. If you work for an employer during the notice period for a previous employer, does the previous employer have to know? And if not, can they find out?

So, suppose you work for company A. You resign or they fire you from company A and you get 3 months of notice period, paid, and on "garden leave" (i.e. company pays you but states that you are not to show up at the place of work).

You then get job offer for company B. Can you start work for company B while the 3 months notice period from company A is in course?

Must you tell company A that you're now working for company B?

And if you do not tell company A, can they find out somehow?
