1.) Would Vs Would have

2.) Because Vs Because of Vs Due to


If + Past Tense would + inf
If + Past Perfect Tense would have + past participle


Because + SENTENCE

because of + NOUN

due to should only be used as a complement (i.e., after a be-verb (yeah, stupid rule, but some people are adamant about it)) NOT as a preposition (i.e., NOT at the beginning of the sentence).

Pure opinions from learnings , use it at your discretion.
