I am having trouble chopping the ball (forehand) in a match, where it goes too far or too high or I just miss the ball. Do you have any suggestions as to how I can fix this? Thanks!
The forehand chop is an awkward stroke.
Try to have your hand relaxed and focus on your bat moving towards the other side of the table. Make sure you are also brushing under the ball on contact to generate the spin and to compensate for any spin that may be on the ball.
Keep practicing the technique consistently. The more you do, the more relaxed your hand will become as well which will benefit the stroke.

Is this the same for a backhand chop?

The principles are similar. Take a look at the lesson on the Backhand Chop for more information on the stroke.
