I could not find where to change that shortcut so that it becomes backspace instead of help. Is there a bundle involved?

There are many bundles that have individually defined ⌃H to do something useful. It would be a pain to change them all, but you of course have that option.

FYI, you can see if a keystroke is associated with a bundle item by hitting ⌃⌘T, selecting “Key Equivalent” and hitting the keystroke. It's context sensitive, so ⌃H, for instance, would only show the help command for the current language.

To see ALL the keystrokes (defined in bundles), there's always ⌃⌥⌘K.
