Yes, increasing N2 does affect H2 as well. To restore N2 to its equilibrium concentration, the reaction would shift to the right and favor product formation. As a result, more H2 would be used up and its concentration would decrease.
If you increase N2, the increase in reactants would shift it toward the products meaning it would make more product. If you were to make more products, you need both the reactants to make it, H2 would also have to decrease.

Yes, it would decrease the [H2]. Because you increased the reactants, the forward reaction would be favored. In order for the forward reaction to occur, H2 will be used.
