Difference between Gerund and Present participle
Both Gerund and present participle look alike in form but they differ in function.
Gerund form- V+ing
Present participle- V+ing
Gerund works as a noun in a sentence. For example- Smoking is a bad habit. Here in this sentence smoking is a gerund which works as a subject noun. 
But present participle works as an adjective in a sentence and qualifies a noun. For example- I saw a running elephant. Here in this sentence running is a present participle which works as an adjective and qualifies the noun elephant. 
Present participle form of verb is also used in continuous tense. For example, he is running. This sentence is an example of the present continuous tense and running is called present participle form of verb.

A Good Post to know the difference between Must and Have to
Use of Must/Have to

‘Must’ and ‘have to’ are used in the present to say that something is necessary or should be done.
‘Must’ is used to talk about what the speaker or listener wants and ‘have to’ about rules, laws and other people’s wishes.
Example- 
1. It is getting dark. You must go home now.
2. You have to qualify the entrance examination to get admission in this college.
There are no past or future forms of ‘must’. To talk about the past we use ‘had to’.
Example- I had to wait half an hour for the bus.
‘Will have to’ is used to talk about the future.
You will have to wake up early to catch the train.
