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."

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".
