When raising money from investors what is typically the norm for equity vesting acceleration for founders in case of termination (both without cause or resigning for good reason)? I'm looking to better understand what is the norm that investors are accepting.

Is it common to have an acceleration clause in these cases?

If it is common, then what is the acceleration (3 months, 6 months, 12 months, 100%)?

Assuming you have a 1 year cliff, what happens if the termination happens during the first year when you have not vested anything yet?
