Perhaps I missed it in the rules, but how does the Health points work? Do you start on 3 and if lose them all you are out of the game? Thanks

Basically yes.

The rulebook isn't written particularly well and doesn't specifically say it!

The key points can be inferred from p3 'Game Objective' where it mentions 'captured or killed', p5 referring to the coins from the purse and says 'Shot - players lose one health point' and p6 where players shoot each other and mentions 'or there is only one player left standing'.

Not clear is it!

Also there is a card which restores two health points. If, when you lose your third health point you die, then adding two health points will always take you to full health. So why doesn't it say that? Alternatively if you only die when you get shot with no health points remaining (I.e you can be shot 4 times) then the 'restore two health points' makes sense.

Yes, Start with 3, removing counters as you suffer shots, the ability card allows you to gain(recover) 2. You can also sit out a round to recover.
