I am aware you need to give 8 weeks notice to return. Does this include if you wish to take 52 weeks (i.e. you would give notice at 44 weeks)? Do I need to let employer know if I want to take Additional Maternity Leave?

You only need to give 8 weeks notice if you are returning earlier than the 12 months that you are due to be off. Your employer should assume you are taking your full entitlement and only needs notice if you are returning before that

Don't forget your accrued holiday. Some employers insist you take it before you go back, and you need to book it with the required notice. (For example we have to give double the length of the holiday booked as notice (so if you've accrued 4 weeks you will need to book it 8 weeks before) - IYSWIM?
