Re: New employer wants me to start before end of current contract

You don't need to tell your old employee anything. And what you do in your holiday time is up to you. So say nothing, get your holiday paid which you are fully entitled to and your shares as per your contract. There is nothing illegal in this at all.

If I was your new employer, I would not compensate you for any loss of shares, and I doubt that he will, so don't even bother asking, it may just put you in a bad light before you even start!
Actually, you are obliged by law to tell them ... it would be illegal (in the sense of violating the employment contract) to work for another company without your employer's agreement. This is part of the Code of Obligations legislation for employment contracts.
