    Yes, they do. It is a accent. Actually, in different part of China, people's pronunciation is slightly different, because they speak other dialect, which influence their Mandarin.
    It is a bit like the difference between American and British.

    Yes they do pronounce it as Ho but it is a part of a slang called Hokkien. As for Hong Kong people they pronounce it as Hou.
