In JAWS you can also hit the level number of the heading to get to it.

Not as far as I know...this is one of the misconceptions about how we move through content. We only Tab through links and form controls and use regular reading commands for other elements.

If you are using JAWS you can use H to move to the next heading and Shift + H to move to the previous heading or use JawsKey F6 to get a list of headings. NVDA should have similar keyboard commands.

You might be able to "Tab" through heading that are also links, but it would be the "links" you are tabbing to...the fact that it is a heading is incidental.
