Does the heart react with extra beats or palps when "touched" or pressure by something like gas or pressure from full stomach ?

In brief: Breathe correlation

The breathing space regulates heart rate.
So the pressure if this affects the ability to take deep breath and exchange oxygenation the lack of oxygenation triggers vagal response which will correct the oxygen exchange by increasing heart rate. Your heart rate is actually tied in to your breathing rate in a phenomenon called "respiratory sinus arrythmia (RSA)".
