Pronunciation of 'marcher'

Hi could you please explain the pronunciation of Marcher

1. The 'e' at the end of Matcher is clearly pronounced. I had understood that the final e of a word was not pronounced ... could you please clarify.

2. It sounds as if the 'ch' in marcher is pronounced exactly as an English 'ch' though I'd understood that a French 'h' is not pronounced. If the 'h' is not pronounced then 'c' should, according to the pronunciation rules, be pronounced as [s] or [k] depending on circumstances ... but this is not so.

Please advise Thank you
