yes to trains,
look at take off and landing times to help make the decision, logically into Venice out of Rome but a check may turn it around

Budget per night in euros? For how many people? What are you expecting? Budget and simple? Moderate and pleasant?

Rome I liked staying in the quarter called the Vatican, done it twice, mainly residential with local supermarkets and shops all around so a bit less touristy until you push up against the actual Vatican.

Venice, sounds silly but try and be at least near the water but not on a main pedestrian pathway/junction. Search on this site for recommendations (use the search box for each city) and double check on tripadvisor

Just a point in Rome do chose to be close to an urban train station, yes you can use the buses but the train makes it so much easier to get about.
