I have some pages with noindex. These pages have some SEO errors. SEO errors include:

  • not using H1
  • Not using meta tags
  • Not adding alt="" tags to images

But there no such SEO problems on my other indexed pages. In addition, noindex pages receive traffic through social media, so Google knows these pages. Will it do any harm to my other pages even though noindex pages are not read by google?

Nope! Google ranks pages not websites. Since they are pages that you do not want to have indexed, you do not need to optimize them.

Do be mindful of your users though! You should add alt text to your images for accessibility. This tag is designed for accommodating users with visual impairments or other disabilities.
