I have done full trust farm level deployments (on-premise) till now and have no idea of SharePoint online/Office 365 development and deployment for SharePoint Apps, SharePoint Framework and PowerApps etc.

I would like to purchase Office 365 subscription for developing and deploying my own apps for my learning. Please advise on which plan/subscription I need to take.

I have Visual Studio with Office Developer Tools installed on my notebook, and when deploying, I want to point to SharePoint site on Office 365. Another question, can I create new users after I purchase my subscription so that I verify my apps with different logins with different permissions?

You can join the Office 365 Developer Program for free. One of the benefits of this program is an Office 365 developer tenant that is good for one year. It's important to note that this developer tenant does not come with Azure credits.

Developer program benefits

Certain MSDN subscriptions include an Office 365 Developer tenant as a benefit. Those subscriptions will also include $150 in Azure credits. You can check your MSDN subscription portal for more information and to see if you qualify.
