I struggle with knowing when to use "veel" and when to use "heel". Does anyone have some tips?

I too was wondering why "het is opeens veel koud" is incorrect.

A friend has told me to use "veel" when you would say "many" in English; and "heel" in place of "very".

It is consistent with not allowing "veel koud" as that would be "many cold"

(Unfortunately "veel" isn't "very" as they sound similar more alike and I might be less likely to make a mistake!)

Is it "het is heel koud opeens" also valid?
