That's depends entirely on the contract. Most contracts require that you follow the wording the contract in terms of breaking it. Just because you may have a better position to go to, that doesn't mean that you can just breach the contract.

If the contract requires a specific amount of notice, then you have to give that amount of notice or you are in breach and can be sued for damages.
