Let's say someone already has my key and is logged in my wifi network and also has access to my router. Catching the four-way handshake for the hacker is important to see my web traffic. If he wants to see my traffic/log from the router I suppose it's the same thing: he also has to catch the four-way handshake right?

If the attacker have control of your wifi router he/she just need to capture the traffic with tcpdump on the corresponding network device.

  • But even on a router log the https websites are not visible except for the hostname right?

    That depends on your router logs in general, but for HTTPS you will see some information related to the handshake and certificate, the rest is encrypted if is proper HTTPS
