But then what's the difference between melting and decomposition?
This one you should be able to answer by yourself. Cool the sample down - what will be the result in both cases?

As far as I know there is no direct connection between thermal stability and melting point. Or at least there is no universal connection - it may exist for specific types/families of compounds.
