If you take german in a school its way easier to memorize verbs like haben because the teachers teach us cool hints to learn material in limericks, songs, and hand motions. Maybe even more things. My teacher said that there is a limerick called EST TEN TEN. So, the first e means there is an e at the end, which is ich habe. The st means there is an st at the end, which is du hast. So on with t, en, t, en. Sometimes irregular verbs like lesen could throw you off. The conjugation for that is ich lese, du liest, er/sie/es liest, wir lesen, ihr lest, und sie(Formal)/sie(they) lesen. There are other verbs that are irregular too, but keep this in mind.
You hear hab in colloquial German or in song lyrics when habe has one too many syllables for the metre. If it is used in present tense it always stands for "habe" never "haben" so it is only used with ich.
ich habe (I have) du hast (you have) er/sie/es hat (he/she/it has) wir haben (we have) ihr habt (you all have) sie haben (they have) Sie haben (you have)
