In a standard American car, does operating the heater draw power from the battery when the engine is running? I'm referring to the heater alone, not the heater fan.

No. The cars interior heat is provided by the engine coolant absorbing heat from the combustion process and then circulated via a series of hoses and temperature controlling valves to a radiator inside the cabin. I didn't look up a link on this one, but I think 35 years as a mechanic might qualify the answer.
