Quick question..... ??? ??? ???

Is it possible to re-new a residence permit with out a job?  MIne is running out fast and...well through various circumstances, the couple of positions i had lined up have fallen through. :( :o
Added to that i dont want to rent an apartment, (Need to be out of this school asap  they kindly told me today >:( >:() only to find that its either too far away from the place of work or dont start a job ( being fussy and waiting for replies from a few ),before the visa expires.

My understanding is

Your employer is the only one who can extend your Z visa by extending the contract.
You can get an L visa issued here but you will need to leave to re-issue your Z visa.

If you have an F visa, you can not teach. That's the law.

Those that get caught have difficulty returning.
If you are teaching on an F visa, you have no recourse for issues such as them breaking the contract.

You can loose 1 month pay and airfare. Many have.

  Hi guys , Here is a quick question and your replies/help/advice will be highly appreciated.

      After getting a working visa (30 days ) from home country through a company in a city, will it be possible to do the extension through another company in a different city with a letter of release? ( with a genuine reason for a release.) ?

I don't wish to be quoted on this, however, my understanding is that a specific company sponsors your visa. Once you terminate for what ever reason, with release, you are able to work for another company in another province or not but they must sponsor your visa. New job, new visa.

You can renew or extend a visa within China Mainland but you can not be issued with a new visa except going to an "L" (tourist) visa.
Which means, if you have a Z or F visa, you do not need to leave. If you go from L to Z or F, you must leave.
You are also restricted as to how many "L" visa you can obtain consecutively. (2 rewewals).

Of course there seem to be exceptions to the rule.

Most F visas have fairly short exit requirements, nature of business.
General rule requires you to exit China on a regular basis.
Issued/renewed outside China Mainland.

I have a passport runs out on 28 February 2017 and a visa that runs out on 1 December.
I am coming to Turkey 8 - 23 September.

Do I need to renew my passport before I travel.
I assume that if I get a new passport I need a new visa, is this correct?

Thank you.
