In brief: Coronary disease
Pvc's that increase with a higher heart rate are possibly caused by ischemia (insufficient oxygen supply to the heart) while pvc's that go away with exercise are usually benign.
You should see a cardiologist and have a stress test.

I agree with Dr Stuart that you should see a physician although it does not have to be a cardiologist right away. Other things than ischemia can cause these extra beats, such as caffeine, nicotine, meds, thyroid disease and so on. And they can be very normal. See your pohysician and have a good history and exam, as well as an EKG, and then go from there
