Sounds like either low coolant or an air pocket.

Yes , so have radiator cap off & warm up the engine to operating temp. this will push any air out, while engine running, top it off until full.

Sometimes you have to elevate the front of the the car so the radiator is higher than the engine, a foot usually does the trick.

Are you indicating you have NO heat when you are driving down the road and accelerating? If the engine is running at IDLE...do you have heat? Try this. With the engine running and warmed up...at IDLE...place your hand over both HEATER HOSES. They should both feel about the same temperature...HOT.
