In brief: As much as possible

Exercise is particularly beneficial for the heart and for patients with heart failure regular exercise will help to strengthen and improve overall function.
Because heart failure can limit exercise tolerance, always consult with your doctor before embarking on an exercise regimen.

In brief: Can't generalize

That is a question that must be determined on an individual basis.
