Avant que + ne expletif + subjunctive

Avant que + ne expletif + subjunctive

I realise that this is a question about "avant que + ne expletif + subjunctive" but if the subject is the same in both clauses can we not also use "avant de venir" instead? Avant que je ne vienne, je dois acheter des fleurs. or Avant de venir, je dois acheter ds fleurs.
