    1)Their voyage begins at Tabard Inn in London, that is connected to (with?) pleasure and ends in Canterbury, a symbol of the celestial city of Jerusalem.
    This sentence is strange. Tell me what "that" is referring to, and I'll know better how to rephrase it.

    2) The pilgrims start from Tabard Inn and travel towards Canterbury.
    Yes, that's fine.

    3) OK

    4) In the General Prologues, as well as in the prologue before each tale, the pilgrims are characterized by their clothes, appearance, and professions.

    5)Don't switch from the past to the present when describing the themes dealt with in the tales.

    6) The main themes dealt with in the tales are those of marriage, love, corruption, and chivalry.

    7) The themes presented in the tales are those of love and marriage.

    8) Canterbury Cathedral is a symbol of the celestial city of Jerusalem. This implies that we are all pilgrims on a journey towards the celestial city.
