Plactic conduit (2) questions

1. Is it NEC code compliant to install two circuits in the same conduit? One is 220 V and the other 110. Both circuits will be
using single solid strand 12 ga. conductors as follows:
220 circuit - 1 green, 1 red, 1 blue. Load 2250 W. (heaters) on
a two pole 20 AMP breaker. In line thermostat.
110 circuit - 1 green, 1 black, 1 white. Four recepticles on a single
pole 15 AMP breaker.

2. Assuming #1 is OK can I install gray PVC electical conduit at
floor level (on the base board)? If not how high off the floor must
it be?

BTW: This is a great forum. I always come back.

Yes, you can do that, there is no reason you cannot put the 120v circuit on a 20A breaker also.

1. Yes.
2. Yes. Use schedule 80, not schedule 40.
