What is the normal "respiration rate" and "heart beat" range of a 20 days old newborn?

In brief: Normal HR ; RR

The normal range for heart rate is 100-160 for a 3 week old, although if baby really upset crying hard up to 180 would not be unusual.
Respiratory rate ranges from low 20's to 60. # week old babies also still have a percentage of periodic breathing, a normal breathing pattern where they breath very rapidly and then slow way down and almost look like they are not breathing and then speed up again.
