What's the difference between 는데 and 는 것을?

I'm confused because I've read that both of them can be used to tranform a Verb to a Noun.

For example:
My mother said she travels.
a) 는데 = 내 엄마 여행하는데 말했어요.
b) 는 것을 = 내 엄마 여행하는 것을 말했어요.

Also, sentences like: He said you are beautiful or I sing the song we sang yesterday.

Sentences which have two Verbs so you have to put both of them in one sentence.

    The translation of the example you put isn't correct,I am afraid.:(
    It will be "우리 엄마는 여행간다고 말했어요." (without honorifics)

    1. someone said that... = (someone)이/가....라고/다고 (말)했다.
    2. my mom = 우리 엄마 not 내 엄마
    3. He said you are beautiful >> 그는 네가 예쁘다고 했어.
    4. I sang the song we sang yesterday >> 나는 어제 우리가 불렀던 노래를 불렀다.

    There is no "는데" or "는 것을" in your sentences.:(
