Try thinning the varnish so it goes on smoother, without the deep valleys you have.
If you have really deep brush marks, you’re always going to have a problem sanding and rubbing out.
With a thicker finish like you’re using, there’s no need to wet sand between coats. And 220 or 320 is all you should need. No need to go to 400 grit between coats.

For the final coat, I’d try to apply 2-3 coats so you have more material for the final sanding.
Apply each coat when it gets tacky. Spraying would make this a lot easier.
