"As much as cold it is outside as much hot it is inside."

Please check.

No. It's completely wrong. My best guess is that you're trying to say "It's as cold outside as it is hot inside". It's grammatical even if it's a highly unlikely scenario and doesn't really make practical sense.

It's as cold outside as it is hot inside.

The sentence does not make any sense to me. How hot and how cold are they?

There is no indication at all as to the degree of hotness or coldness, so I think "very" is just an assumption.

The colder it is outside, the warmer it is inside.

That has a different meaning, Matthew.

The colder it is outside, the warmer people feel inside.

The sentence implies a correlation between the outside and inside temperatures.
