The basics
The biggest thing to focus on in my opinion is to maximize damage when your Turrets shoot their charged up Beam Attack. You can Max out W first if you are good with skill shots, but I recomend starting out maxing your Q. Your turrets will sustain damage longer and hit harder.

Save your gernades for when you can stun your target within range of all turrets and you will halfhealth almost anyone.

Any other questions can be asked directly on my stream!
Value of hard pushing in lane
My basic philosophy when playing Hiemerdinger mid is to pull the pressure away from the side lanes and the JG. Giving the enemey team as little prio as possible. The reason being is that most junlgers can't properly gank Heimerding without giving up a kill and often times give up multiple kills.

Especially in lower elos players just dont respect the turrets and will greed/int just to kill the annoying little brain rat that is the ****er.

YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFUL THOUGH. You MUST be intentional about it. You need to know where the enemy Jungler is at all times. You need to have good vision on them and position in lane accordingly. You want to be up far enough that you bait a gank. And you need to save your E (gernade/stun) for when they take the bait. It should also go without saying, but Don't bait a gank if you dont have ult. This is necessary in order to secure one or both kills. The enemy must decide between dying just to get to you, or backing off and taking a recall. Either way, you get gold advantage. Gold from kills, or gold from free farm. Ideally both. ;)

Your second item, and if you can swing it, your second back, you should be investing in a stopwatch. Having Zhonyas Hourglas is so important for this character. This will almost guarentee winning trades in a fight/enemy gank. And having this rune selection, you get cooldown bonuses for your items, allowing you to use this more often.( and you WILL be using it a lot).

I also prefer to take Lyandrys for the extra passive burn damage. It's just one more thing that the enemy usually ignores when prancing around in your turrent zones. So when you are invulnerable in your Zhonyas active, they are getting the max damage over time, maximizing your chances of them dying before you're out of your Zhonyas.

This is also key, DON'T FORGET TO EMOTE WHEN THEY PASS AWAY. lol, a tilted enemy is a losing enemy. Get out there and climb! GGs my friends!
