This what they stated: "For the reason explained to you verbally, we are forced to terminate...."
You're entitled to be given a reason. In writing. Preferably when given the boot as well as in the ArbeitsZeugnis. A simple 1-liner email of yours requesting such should do.

As for the compensating, that may be not so clear given the amount of holiday days involved. Holidays are there for your recuperation, hence the demand that at least two of the four annual weeks must be given/taken in one piece. That doesn't apply (fully) when you have to job-hunt.

Since you need to contact RAV ASAP anyways, ask them about their opinion. And specifically what they would say if you didn't job-hunt for 6 weeks (your holidays) of the 3-month notice, how that would affect your RAV payment and how that squares with the employer's position that the holidays are taken during the notice period.

You could then take it up with your employer, starting from the position that the entire holidays need to be paid out because you're busy hunting for a job; it's covid times after all. Expect them to try and haggle and getting your demand lowered, perhaps unless you have legal insurance.

As for the ArbeitsZeugnis, suggest to HR or your direct superior to help and formulating the parts yourself that describe what you did, and how well. Make sure stuff that was important for your job is mentioned with proper emphasis. It will help to have them explicitly mention that it isn't coded. Some employers have such a notice in the footer on each page, like, "dieses ArbeitsZeugnis ist nicht kodiert".
