BよりAのほうが大きい。→ The fact is that A is bigger than B. のほうが indicates and point out A. より means ''than'' here. ほどの方がより丁寧な印象です。→ If you talking about ていど or くらい(extent), ほど would be formal version of them. Example:それがどれほど困難なのか実感した。

「BよりAのほうが大きい」のメインの意味は、「Aのほうが大きい」で、「Bより」はbench markです。この文は、「AはBより大きい」とも言えます。このばあいもメインの意味は、「Aは大きい」で、「Bより」はbench markです。 「より」と「ほど」は、ちょっとnuanceがちがいます。「より」 indicates the bench mark as mentioned above. 「ほど」 indicates the bench mark like 「より」, but also indicates degree. I assume the nuance differences are same as in English. "A is bigger than B" and "B is not as big as A" have slightly different nuance, don't they?
