Hi

I will try and take a swipe at this. I will use examples to clear the meaning

Besides - I go for a walk regularly; besides the park is just around the corner.
Usage denotes an additional point which really is the sub-ordinate clause

Despite - Despite the heavy downpour in the morning, I went for a walk.
Usage denotes that although there was something, the action continued

In addition - In addition to going for a walk, I sometimes go for a run
Denotes complementary activity

Until - Until I reduce some weight, I will be going for a walk.
Denotes the action to continue till a specific point
