Default Quit job on H1b - what to do re visa?

As you may have seen on another thread, my wife obtained an H1b and we moved to NY for her to start a new job. She has since quit and we have returned to the UK.
The question I have is - do we need to do anything about removing visas from passports? The visa stamps show validity until November 2017 but the H1b is obviously now no longer valid. Just want to avoid any confusion at US immigration as we are planning to go to Florida next year.

Thanks

What usually happens to me is on my next trip to the US, either on VWP or on a new visa, the border agent will look at the old visa and stample it with "CANCELLED WITHOUT PREJUDICE" in massive black letters.

I also have old visas that they just left alone completely.

It hasn't been a big deal.

Yes, it shouldn't be a big deal.

Just make sure that you have a valid ESTA before traveling.
