I assume the GeoTiff is in WGS84 EPSG:4326 with degrees as units. As you may know, degrees of latitude and degrees of longitude have different lengths if you are away from the equator. What you expect to see is a projected CRS, like Web Mercator EPSG:3857 or the UTM zone of your part of the world. In QGIS, you can set the project CRS to change the view ...
These days you can use Google Earth Pro for free: Note: Google Earth Pro requires a license key. If you do not have a key, use your email address and the key GEPFREE to sign in. Google Earth Pro should be able to load directly your GeoTIFF (and save as something else if you need).
Depending on where you create the VRT, it will either become a relative path, or an absolute path. You can manually set this, by modifying the relativeToVRT="1"to a 0, and then write a complete path in the instead of just the image filename. See the example below of a full path VRT. <VRTRasterBand dataType="Byte" band="1"> ...
since the square if this image is slightly tilted, I am quite sure that this GeoTIFF is already map projected/georeferenced. Check the properties (e.g. QGIS /ArcGIS) to see which map projection it is. Actually, if you use gdal_warp on this Geotiff indicating your wanted output projection, it will probably read the existing map projection and reproject it ...
If you don't like coding but need an UI, you could check GlobalMapper converter.mygeodata.eu as mentioned in these posts. Never tried them myself though.
