Default How does the domain move when changing web hosting companies?

I could have sworn that I'd asked this question before but I can't find it so I'm going to ask it again...

I'm considering changing my web hosting company and I'm a bit confused about how my domain gets transferred to the new company.

It seems to me that at some point in the process, my domain/web site will be unavailable because logically it seems to me that I'm going to have to cancel my account with my current webhost (my website files will then no longer exist) but I don't want to lose my ownership of my domain so how does the process work?

Do I just sign up for whatever plan I want at whatever webhosting company I have chosen and do they take care of transferring my domain to their servers?

Did I ask the question correctly???
