I would Like to know the brief difference between Minimal master page VS HTML master page, Please Provide any reference links. I am New to SharePoint Development. Thanks in Advance.

If you want to design your site with more customization. you should go with HTML master page.
Here is the reference link from MS for Minimal Master page and HTML Master Page:
