Instead of "", use Date(Blank(),Blank(),Blank()).  Sets it to null value, but in a date format.

None of these answers worked for me and I really did not want to recreate the date columns in separate text columns.

I had to use this formula on the submit button:

SubmitForm(Form1); If(Or(IsBlankOrError(DataCardValue8.SelectedDate), IsBlankOrError(DataCardValue9.SelectedDate)), RecordsRetentionSetNullDates.Run(RecordsRetentionList.Selected.ID, IsBlank(DataCardValue8.SelectedDate), IsBlank(DataCardValue9.SelectedDate)), "");

 

And set up a corresponding flow to input those null values in the date fields.
