Are landlords required to pro-rate rent upon move out in California?

Update: I am moving out on July 12th after being on a month to month lease. My landlord has agreed to rent the unit to another tenant beginning August 1st. I already told her in advance that I may be moving mid-July yet, I think that she thinks I'm still going to pay the full rent in July and not have it pro-rated.

If I ask her to pro-rate my rent in July by giving her a 30-day notice with a definite move out date, is she legally obligated to abide by my request?
