In brief: True true, unrelated
Heart failure can cause pulmonary edema (water logged lungs) for which one sign is wheeze (all that wheezes is not asthma).
A related environmental cause - severe pollution , could lead a person with both to have an exacerbation of both... But it is more likely that "cardiac asthma" isn't asthma at all, but just the heart failure.
