A settlement agreement is its own separate agreement which takes over any contractual obligations you and the employer have. On that basis, the employer does not have to pay you for the settlement agreement AND also for your contractual notice period. The notice period will usually be negotiated as part of the agreement itself so you need to ensure that whatever offer has been made is acceptable to you and also does not remove any entitlements you would have had in the event the employer terminated your employment without such an agreement.
