Slashing risk in staking

I'm thinking about staking my tokens directly at a validator, instead of staking it at a centralized platform. However, an open question I have is how large the risk due to slashing actually is. How much of the delegated matic tokens can I lose if the validator e.g. goes offline and misses signing the checkpoints? Also, if a validator decides to quit validating, will my funds automatically be returned to my wallet? Thank you for the answers.
