Venice to Vienna and in-between

I will be spending a week in Venice, then am going to Vienna. How should I travel between them? Should I stop anywhere along the way?

The Seat61 site suggests that the Venice-Verona-Innsbruck-Vienna day train route is good for some pleasant scenery. I like the idea of a day on a train with scenery, not so keen on the overnight train. Should I stop anywhere along the way (on that route or your suggested route?).
I leave Venice on a Saturday, and depart for home from Vienna on the following Sunday night. I am staying with a friend in Vienna, so I am really only looking for a couple of days diversion at most (if there is something worth stopping for). In Venice, we have rented an apartment in Dorsoduro.
I am interested in food, interesting day tours, natural beauty, and just general wandering around (on foot, or bike, perhaps). I am not even sure what I might be choosing to miss, so put up your suggestions if I should definitely not miss them! I was a big fan of the Sound of Music as a child - is Salzburg worth a stop?
Also welcome any tips for the above interests in Venice and Vienna.
