It will change the flavour (quite a bit actually, but not unpleasantly so) but honey works in place of Maple Syrup for texture. You will probably find honey to be sweeter tasting than Maple Syrup, so maybe use a smidge less.

It probably depends on the kind of honey that you use. If you use a light honey like orange blossom or clover it will not replicate the intense flavor of maple syrup. But if you use a strong flavored honey like cotton honey it will hold its' own flavor wise. The texture will be the same.

As others have said, it will change the flavor. Though I like honey in certain applications, I would not welcome it as a sub for maple syrup here.

Yes! I often use the two interchangeably!
