The relationship between heat and infrared radiation is that one is generated from the other.

Heat is thermal energy. It is the collective energy of movements of atoms, molecules, and electrons within, and dependent upon, a bounded system of matter. This form of energy is not capable of moving through a vacuum.

Infrared radiation is electromagnetic radiation or light energy, photon emissions from any mass who's temperature is above absolute zero. It is energy that has been converted from thermal energy and, once generated, is independent of matter and capable of moving through a vacuum
