So if I leave early exactly because I already have a new one (who've accepted me therefore would be safe), are there any other negative ramifications?
You're in breach of a contract and are breaking Swiss law. I would imagine there can be all kinds of negative consequences, and would imagine a judge would have the right to prevent you from taking new employment during that period, though I expect that would be an unlikely outcome.

In addition, I almost forgot. You actually cannot leave early from a work contract without both employer and employee agreement. It would be picked up very quickly, due to your AHV contribution. You will suddenly have a month or two of double contributions. This then brings tax problems, as well as a host of others. You really don't want that type of stress.

While on this topic, I have a notice period of 4 months in my contract. However the contract does not stipulate any conditions or consequences if I give them less notice.

What can they legally do if I give them notice but then leave earlier? 4 months is quite long and any prospective new employer may not wait that long.
I wonder what you would say if your employer comes up to you tomorrow and says, Piazza, old chap, i don't need you any more so you can toddle along as of Friday evening"

It works both ways......
