  1. Correct

  2. "planned to seize"

    looks like a simple predicate to me.

    If it said:

    "planned to seize immediately"

    I would say "planned to seize" was the simple predicate
    and
    "planned to seize immediately" was the complete predicate

  4. "to seize" is an infinitive ... it complements the main verb
