Is it faster if I take train to JB central then take grab to Larkin bus terminal then take coach bus to malacca? This way immigration can clear very fast and I can buy both the train and bus tickets online. I don't seem to see anyone doing this combination of transport.
It depends on when you intend to make the trip, because it has a bearing on the traffic situation at Tuas/Woodlands. Tuas tends to be better on most days for most timings.
If you use this method, you will have a higher certainly of arriving on time in Malacca.

Is there a high frequency public transport between muar and malacca? Attending a wedding at muar, but intend to stay at malacca hotels. Due to >8 pax, multiple travels and coordination, not considering selfdrive or grab. Regular Public Bus service would be good if any.

Googled out of curiosity...

Frequency looks decent, but not sure if you'll be able to make it for the last bus back to Melaka after the wedding.

See the booking sites.

If your hotel is along the way and traffic condition allows, the coach should be able to drop you off within reasonable walking distance, if not in front, before they head to the major ones like Casa, Hatten, and Equatorial.

Choice of hotels basically depends on your budget and preferred area...

DoubleTree by Hilton is a nice and modern hotel. But the location is a little far from Jonker Street so be prepared to walk a distance or grab there.
