Heart rate fast?: Assuming you meant "heart" and not "heat", fever will often (but not always) be accompanied by an increase in the heart beat rate.

Yes: Rapid heart rate or tachycardia can be caused by fever. However, if you also have chest pain, dizziness or a fever above 102, please see a doctor.
