If not what is the best material to use and where to get it from?
2. What is standard height for shower head?
Why is there thinset on the board? Some people mesh the seams and mud a thin coat-- Did he start tiling and leave the mud combed on?
Remove it---a grinder works.
Waterproofing the board with a paint on coating is a good bit of insurance.
Red Guard or Hydroban work well and are easy to apply.
Tile and grout are not waterproof ---some water will work its way through the grout---no harm will come to the thinset or board.
