  1. The second is correct; the first is ungrammatical but can be corrected by replacing “intend” by “intent”.

  2. The difference is that “intend doing something” is simply not correct. “Intend to do something” would be the best way to say it, with “intend on doing something” being a little awkward here but acceptable.
