    We use both spellings for the thick, red tomato sauce. I'm pretty sure ketchup is a lot more common.

    Very rarely have I heard someone pronounce catsup as it is written. I thought it a silly affectation.

    it-is-niaz, I am sure that if you want a hot dog without tomatoes on it you can get one.

    Some people in my region pronounce them like cat-chup, some like ket-chup. The spelling doesn't matter.
