    He is essentially super-powered and at small bursts can duplicate superhuman speed.

As far as I know, that was a one-off trick he pulled in the UDON mini. I've never seen it mentioned elsewhere.

    Fandral noted he was getting better with each step, e.g. his ability to duplicate skills was copying Fandral's. Which is to say, his duplicated skills of Black Knight/Swordsman wasn't quite as good to begin with.

Yeah, although I'm not sure he's ever had the opportunity to study the original Swordsman, since the Swordsman died before he debuted. He's definitely studied footage of the Black Knight, but being able to reproduce some of Dane's moves doesn't necessarily make him equal as an all around swordfighter.

In terms of general combat skill, Taskmaster's record suggests he's a step behind the likes of Daredevil and Cap on average, despite having copied moves from them and others.

    He is also shown matching Fandral with his blows, has he got superhuman strnegth derived from his battle armour? I don't know.

Nah. That looks like his classic costume, and he's never been portrayed as having a strength-enhancing suit to my knowledge, certainly not as standard.

    I can't access the Thor comment, but yeah, Thor thought he would beat Superman in another fight. He tends to say statements like this. In addition, he may be remarking about accuracy, or a narrow margin of set moves. I don't know - but Thor is not a swordsman.

Thor's sometimes guilty of bluster, but this is the opposite; he was giving the Swordsman credit. I posted the wrong link before, but here's the page itself.
