Looking at my '94 Clio I can't see an earth between engine and body either so I guess it's normal. I had similar problems with the screw type battery connector, and where the earth from the battery connects to the bodywork, ncle cleaned and tightened all ok.
Last thought. Check the connectors on the starter, I had problems once and the connectors were loose / dirty. A quick clean and refit did the trick. If yours is like mine it's tucked behind the engine.
