The "Venom" in the mask makes Bane super strong and impervious to pain from what I remember from the comic, but I don't think that detail for whatever reason was shared in the movie. As for the voice, they were cutting another corner and trying to show he's educated; in the comic Bane seeks as much education as he can get. If you didn't know this from the comic though, yeah, his voice does seem kinda odd. They really coulda made it into two movies and explained the Bane character more. Also the Catwoman character coulda used more depth and Bruce Wayne's act two predicamint coulda used more explaining. As to Batman looking tired and worn out, that's how he was supposed to look.
