Do you believe that Chopin moving to Paris had an effect on his compositions?

I believe that it did. For example, in his Nocturne, opus 15, number 1 (F major), the opening melody is very French. Also, the opening of his Ballade in F major (or A minor, whichever side you are on Wink ) sounds almost like a French Christmas Carrol.

Does anyone know any other pieces that have French influence?

Well, we may think of the 2 most famous nocturnes Op.27, the "Notre Dame Paris" prelude Op.28 No.17, and some of his "grande valses brillantes".

Well, I can think of Prelude Op.45, but may not really close to French style.

How about Nocturne Op.32 No.2, maybe except the middle section?

Maybe. I'm thinking of 3 nocturnes op.9. Why did the publisher name them "Les murmures de la Seine"?

Well..then, how about " Polonaise B flat Minor " ?. I think its style is the same " French style" although it was composed in 1826 and Chopin arrived to Paris in 1931. I am confusing.

Well, of course he might've been inspired by French music in Poland already, just like some of his later works he wrote in France still contained many Polish elements.
