While I cannot guarantee that you'll like it, may I suggest GNU Emacs?
Its R support is provided by the ESS package
<https://ess.r-project.org/>, and there's the 'texfrag' package
<https://emacs.stackexchange.com/a/33959> for rendering LaTeX math from
the comments.

In many ways, VS Code is the continuation of the Emacs idea of an
infinitely configurable programmer's text editor [*], although you will
immediately notice major differences in the design decisions taken by
their respective developers. In particular, Emacs key-bindings predate
not only the IBM CUA standard which inspired today's user interfaces,
but many of the mailing list members themselves.
