Advice /ɑd'vaɪs/ is a noun. If you give someone advice, you tell them what you think they should do.
Advice is an uncountable noun. Don't talk about 'advices' or 'an advice'. However, you can talk about a piece of advice.
Advise /ɑd'vaɪz/ is a verb. If you advise someone to do something, you say that you think they should do it.
If you say to someone 'I advise you to...', you are telling them that you think they should do it.
Don't use 'advise' without an object. Don't say, for example, 'He advised to leave as quickly as possible'. If you don't want to say who is receiving the advice, you say 'His advice was to leave as quickly as possible'.
