In my understanding git-remote-hg is to do things  the other way around:
access a mercurial repository with git. 

It is my understanding from discussions in the mercurial list, however
that this strategy is a lot harder (because mercurial has a lot of
concepts git is lacking, please no flamewar)

I use the hg-git plugin to push and pull to a git repository using

In any case, I put in some security layers (for example for matlab-mode)

    1. I clone with git the repository to my machine (matlab-git)

    2. I locally clone that repository with mercurial (matlab-hg)

    3. I do whatever I do in matlab-hg, then I push to matlab-git

    4. Then I push with git to the matlab repository 

That works quite well. Sometimes I have pushed directly from the
mercurial repository to a sandbox repository in bitbucket and cloned
that repository with git back.

As long as one sticks with mercurial bookmarks that works well. Named
branches are more complicated (one can push them to a git repository and
they will be recognised as git branches, the pulling is more
complicated), but that is now off-topic
