      Villain is VP:36/PR:10/AFq:56 over 91 hands.

      Standart 3B and CB on the flop.
      I checked call the turn with the intention of c/f the river if no heart. Is it the right way to play this?
      Obviously with the 4th heart that's an easy AI.

      3bet bigger preflop - sth like $6.

      On the turn it's an easy bet/call for me. This is a 3b pot so I expect him to have some overpairs much more than flushes so b/c is ok.

      Of course c/r is fine too.

      I 3B a 1.50 raise so it is 4.50?
      Dont want to scare them off either with my 3B...

      Cool on the rest.

      Your plan to wait for fourth heart was not very good i think. Since you play OOP and maybe implied odds are not to good if you hit fourth heart.

      I would bet here a little bit more on flop. Maybe something about 7,5$ and then on turn i would play for stack. If he has flush u still have hearts to win. Take the note and move forward.

      Just realize how unlikely it is that a few big blinds make a difference to a 36/10 to begin with, then you'll be able to confidently increase your bet sizes on all streets.

      As for turn play, villain seems to have an somewhat high AFq for his stats. If it's coupled with a low fold to flop c-bet I'd say he'll often show up with random stuff other than a flush which he could bluff with, so I like check/jamming in his face. If he has a big heart or better something like a pair with a heart he's never folding it so it's cool to stack him before they whiff the river. If you think villain isn't particularly likely to show up on a turn with hands that can bluff, just bet for value yourself right away.

      Hope it helps.
