Yes, you need it to be hooked up in the winter also. If you don't have it hooked up then you are heating , and cooling the room at the same time.

The blink is an indication of overheating. Have you cleaned the filters? Have you made sure the exhaust tube doesn't have any kinks in it? Are you using a mains plug that has a grounding connector and doesn't overheats?
If all are how they are supposed to be then the compressor is failing - more precisely its starting capacitor: when heated it starts to short. The unit will have to be opened and the capacitor replaced - it's a special capacitor specifically made for that, you will need to get an exact replacement. Do not keep using the unit in this condition: the capacitor will eventually fail for good and it will fry the compressor in the process, killing the unit.
If you don't have the minimum experience required to do the job safely don't take any chases and call a pro.

Do I need to keep the hose connected to the window in winter time while I use the heater.

The hose is only needed to pump out hot air while using the AC features and not needed at all for heater functions.

Edgestar 12,000 portale air conditioner and heater

There are 3 possibilities beginning with the most likely problem

1) If your heater heats up for a few minutes and then quits, chances are there is a blockage in the air flow, check for dust and grime blocking the air intake coarse filter , airgun blow to clear accumulated dust and otherwise clean the coarse filter .
2) If the heater fan blows but there is no warm air, the heating element needs renewal ( this happens very rarely)
3)If the fan stalls and the heater heats up and the thermostat kicks in, then this will be not be a DIY job. This is least likely as you said the air cooler works.
