The sound th in Irish is basically just "h" in English. It is never pronounced like "th" in English. It isn't quite silent in maith but coming after a vowel sound, it's more that the vowel sound is changed slightly, rather than that you can identify the sound of th - the difference between "mo" and "moh" in English, perhaps.
Native and fluent speakers elide the "n" in an to a greater or lesser extent when it's followed by a word beginning with a consonant. The degree to which any given speaker does this can vary, as can the degree to which any given listener can detect it. In this case it's possible the speaker moderated her pronunciation for the sake of clarity.
