No, your heart doesn't stop...

Another version is sneezing was thought to be an early symptom of the plague. The blessing ("God bless you!") became a common effort to halt the disease.

Another version says that people used to believe that your soul can be thrown from your body when you sneeze,[1], that sneezing otherwise opened your body to invasion by the Devil [2] or evil spirits,[4] or that sneezing was your body's effort to force out an invading evil spirit[1]. Thus, "bless you" or "God bless you" is used as a sort of shield against evil.

An urban legend states that you cannot open your eyes while you sneeze, or if you manage to your eyes will pop out.
from wik..

To halt a sneeze take your thumb and pointer finger (use the tip of your nails) and pinch between the upper part of the nose inbetween the eyebrow.... acupuntcure point..... it will stop the sneeze.
