What about Kg7 instead of Kh7? What would be black response then?

A nice puzzle but Black can win!

After the bishop checks the King the king does not advance allowing the queen to use the rank with the King in attendance. The whit eking is forced to cover the 8th rank and the queen picks off the bishop with a check and the king is once again forced in front of the pawn allowing the king to advance again and the queen to take the pawn.

No, this endgame study is confirmed sound by tablebases and Stockfish. You can test your idea by playing as Black against the SF on this site.

If 3.Kg7?, Black has multiple ways to win. Quickest is 3...Qg5+ 4.Kf8 Ke6 5.Ke8 Qg6 winning the P.
