No, it does not. The "missing" characters are either under numbers (you need to use SHIFT to get numbers in Czech) or under ; = ů, [ = ú

on top of that there are some characters where you have to combine two keys. Typically = and + (that is what you see on your english keyboard) when combined with some letters produce Ď ď, Ť ť Ň ň á Á... etc.

also, you have an option to set Czech keyboard as QWERTY or QWERTZ. I strongly recommend QWERTY if you are used to English keyboard.

No, Czech keyboards have the same amount of keys. You can use stickers:
