Additional body mass generally means higher oxygen requirement, but upper body mass can restrict the expansion of the lungs, decreasing the volume of air that enters with each breath. So since more oxygen is needed, and less oxygen is inhaled, breathing rate generally increases.

The higher your elevation, the less oxygen you have (e.g climbing a mountain). This does not mean you lung capacity is less, it just means you need to breathe more to get sufficient oxygen

How does heart rate affect breathing?

It increases both. The rate of cell metabolism is accelerated during fever, which increases the demand for oxygen by tissue cells. This means the heart must contract more frequently to keep up with the demand, and breathing is accelerated to increase the rate of oxygen and carbon dioxide exchange.
