    "I have never been to Venice, and I have heard much about it."

    Are both correct?
    "I have never been to Venice, and I have heard many things about it."
    "I have never been to Venice, and I have heard much about it."

    Re: "I have never been to Venice, and I have heard much about it."

    The most natural in BrE would be "I have heard a lot about it". Both your suggestions are OK but I wouldn't use either of them.

    I would remove the comma and change "and" to "but".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
