You seem to have started in the middle of the question. Start at the beginning. Is it a detached or attached garage? If detached does it already have power going to it. What have you done so far? What type of electric heater?

A 20 amp circuit needs 12 gage wire. You might want to go larger size (smaller gage) if the run from the breaker is long.

You answered your own question about the breaker when you stated that the need is for 240 volts.
