Will I be classed as voluntarily unemployed if I quit my job. I'm moving 50 miles away and it would take about 2 hours' travelling in each direction (4 hours in total per day). Can I claim jobseekers allowance?

Why are you moving? People are generally expected to move towards a job not away from it. I doubt you will be entitled as you are voluntarily quitting, unless you have a very good reason.

Btw, many people commute for 2 hours each way so the distance alone would not be a factor.
