How would you tell the coordination number of a heme? Is the coordination number the same thing as looking to how many bonds are to the central atom? If so, how does the coordination number relate to what kind of chelate it is?

The coordination is simply the amounts of ligands present. For example (NH3)5 ... The coordination number is 5. However if there are two ligands present then you will add those two together. For example [Co(NH3)4(F2)3 Then you would add the number of ligands and that would be your coordination number. In this example i'ts 7.
