How do you write it in tab when you mute a note right after hitting it, quickly stopping the tone?
and what do you call it?

You have options depending on the context and exact duration, as for example you could use 16th notes (or shorter) with rest afterwards - but this would generally be preferred in tab

That's how GP exports staccato so I assume it's the standard. In sheet music it's a . (dot) at the bottom center of the note.
