In brief: No

Exercise improves exercise tolerance, but does nothing to help asthma.
That being said, it does not worsen it either.

In brief: Yes

If you don't have exercise-induced asthma, or you treat it appropriately, exercise can help with your general wellbeing and thus help your asthma.
Asthma has a large psychosomatic component. If you feel well and not stressed out, you are less likely to suffer from asthma.
