In brief: Drinking water?
Keeping your self well hydrated is a good idea if you have bronchitis as this will help to loosen your secretions.
However, if you have heart disease, ask your doctor to determine how much water is ok for you to drink as you do not want to become fluid overloaded.

In brief: No
But, increased water intake helps thin mucous, which enables the body to clear it more rapidly and helps to reduce coughing.
In addition, if fever is present, it's important to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated.
