In brief: No blood
A heart valve itself not not contain blood, it is made out of fibrous tissue.
The valve opens and closes to let the blood move from one compartment of the heart into another in a one way direction.

In brief: None
Heart valves are not holding structures or chambers, they do not hold blood, they allow passage of blood in one direction, like a check valve.
