    It is grammatically correct, but I wouldn't use it as the meaning is not particularly clear.

    Note my corrections above. When you use a comma, don't put a space before it. We generally use "heartbreak" and "hurt" in the singular.

    Although your sentence is grammatically correct, it doesn't really mean what you want it to. It would be "Don't break anyone's heart". We just don't say "burn someone's heart".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    See above.

    "A lot" is two words.
    End a sentence with one appropriate punctuation mark.
    Don't try to make your own smileys/emoticons. If you must use one, click on and choose one.
