    301 redirection does not affect google as it is consider a permanent redirect

    1 Redirect this site to my main site ( in french )

    2 Place a link to my main site

    Redirect to your main site in french, as google tends to favor website the same language. English posts in english site. Because of the way google search work by geographic and language. If a person in us, select french as his language in google, french language site will be given priority over english.

    Hope this here

    The correct method would be a canonical redirect in this situation.

    Yes you could do that, redirecting visitors to better quality information on the same topic is a good idea.
