can gas in the stomach cause heart palpitations?

No: To be precise, gas in the stomach can not cause heart palpitations, but it can give the feeling like there is something happening to the heart when there is not. We frequently have patients who feel "palpitations" while wearing a heart monitor and we see no abnormalities of the heart rate or rhythm. So, the sensation can come from causes unrelated to the heart.
