first things first. Oil light coming on is a definite don't drive. Cause could be low oil level (need to see if its leaking, burning etc), could be a oil pump gone bad or clogged pick up or could be a bad sensor/wiring. The no heat issue could be a HVAC issue (ie the blend doors closed off the air) or that you lost a bunch of coolant, and while the engine overheated to stall, there wasn't enough coolant to push through the heater core. Could also be electrical - ie bad alternator/low system voltage can create all sorts of odd symptoms prior to the engine dying. I'd be leaning towards a loss of coolant or some form of electrical issue.
