Maybe you could create a new project with only 2 artboards exactly like your heart examples above and post the PSD file!! That might help tremendously and be much easier than trying to explain!

Here's mine where I followed your instructions and screen shots of your layers panel. Artboard 1 copy has had it's Gradient adjustment layers-layer mask filled with black, and then inverted. As you can see the gradient is confined to the artboard, but not the heart shape.

the gradient is set to 'hue' it's purpose being an overlay to color the below layers

The left is confined using the invert / method. The right gradient is spread throughout the whole document and not confined, hence why only the top of the gradient shows

Both are set to 'hue'
