In brief: It doesn't

Heart rate will only increase venous return if one is transitioning from an abnormally fast rate to a normal rate.
Further slowing of the heart rate will not increase venous return and, in fact, if heart becomes too slow, venous return will diminish. If heart rate stops, venous return will also cease.
