the о in кровь sounds like a "у" or an "а" in this word, but should it not be stressed and say it's own name? Am I hearing wrong?
It should. Voiced consonants lose their voice at the end of the word. For example, зуб (tooth) is pronounced like "зуп." A final в will be pronounced like ф (whether hard or soft).
Oh, sorry! Voiced consonants are ones that have that vocal "buzz" going in your larynx when you pronounce them, like b, d, g, v, and z. The unvoiced counterparts for these consonants are, respectively, p, t, k, f, and s. Hope that's helpful.
you're right about the vowel! Think of the palatalization (softness) of the following consonant leaking onto the vowel that precedes it and "raising" it a little bit. It sounds like "oi"
