First thing you have to do is "terminate" the contract exactly as it is stated in the agreement. That is, give the required notice, within the time and to the person, specified in the agreement. Otherwise, you will be in breach of the contract and the Employer will seek "damages".
Beyond that you will be entitled to gratuity for the fist year and then pro-rata for the 9 months. With respect to the holiday pay you should be entitled to the pro-rata days. However, if you suspect that the employer will give you a hard time with respect to the leave (just because you are quitting). Why not take the leave now, then upon return quit so the only issue will be the gratuity to which you are entitled (and even if the Employer gives you a hard time then the amount in dispute is less only the gratuity). As stated before many times whether you are "right" or "wrong" has less to do than the relative "bargaining" power of the Employer. If you know your rights and they think you will enforced then they are less likely to screw you...
First things first, read the Employement contract carefuly..
Your visa will be cancelled (but you knew that).
