No, the racquet should not always be horizontal at contact. For higher contact points it's pointing more upwards generally and you're hitting more across the ball. For lower contact points it's point more downwards. There's a lot of variation possible here because you can raise and lower your hand and bend your knees. It also matters how far outside your body you take the ball. But an important shot to own is one where your hitting across the face of the ball more, on both fh and bh.
