One way or the other, you have left the job. If you quit, then you pick the time and date. But, you are not eligible for unemployment or other training. If they fire you, the time is not of your choosing but you may (depending) be eligible for unemployment. Most people have been fired at one time or another, sad to say. At subsequent interviews, try to stay positive about the company and be clear about what you gained in experience at that job. If the firing is your fault--attendance or performance issues, sort that out so that you don't repeat unacceptable behaviors.

Can you draw unemployment if you quit your job due to a pay cut?

This is a difficult question without a definite answer, but basically this is how it works. If the employer cuts your pay to cause the job to no longer be suitable for you, and that is how it going to be from here on out, then your quitting would be held with good cause. If you quit, you must show that you quit with "with good cause" and good cause is when the employer changes the conditions of hire. With the economy as it is, you want to think things out before you just up and quit. Although this is a quit issue, there are many factors involved in a suitable job issue. .

If you quit your job do you still put it on your resume?

Depends on the job.. Is this an executive position or a federal job? or is this subway or burger king?? If it's a high end job you may want to let your new employer know so that way he doesn't do a check and catch you lying.There can be valid reasons for leaving a job off your resume, but the fact that you quit generally isn't one of them. In fact, you probably want your prospective employer to assume that you quit your former jobs as opposed to being fired from them!
