There is a built in utility for this sort of thing in the

eqns  = {3*a[0,0] + 2*a[0,2] + 4*a[2,0] == 0,
-a[0,0] + 0.3*a[2,0] == 0,
4*a[0,2] - a[0,2] == 0};
vars = Variables[Map[#[]-#[]&,eqns]];
<<LinearAlgebra`MatrixManipulation`

In:= LinearEquationsToMatrices[eqns, vars]
Out= {{{3., 2., 4.}, {-1., 0., 0.3}, {0., 3., 0.}}, {0., 0., 0.}}
