I'll just answer with the translations for now, as writing a long answer on the mobile client is difficult.
Your first sentence translates to:
I plan to fly to Germany in December to visit my SO.
The second sentence means something very different:
In December I decide to fly to Germany to visit my SO.
To put it in extremely short:
Etwas vorhaben = to plan something
Etwas beschließen = to decide (on) something
