Confession: I used to pronounce the H in "herb".
You do if it is short for Herbert, but not if you mean a small plant, is that right? How is a non-native speaker supposed to know that?

The Brits say the "h" sound in both cases.

So not only do you have to be a native English-speaker to say these things right -- you have to know the correct brand of English too.
