Can anyone tell me if a velour seatcover (B&G, Tavelcade, etc.) would affect the operation or effectiveness of the heat for the seat?

I am nor sure about the specific brands. But the heated seat and grips are partly controled by the outside temperature. The colder it is outside the hotter the seat is allowed to get (Honda limited it so that we can't blister our butts) So since the max is limited if you find that the max is not enough then I would say that the cover would decrease the amount of heat felt by the rider.

On a personal note I find that the heater is quite warm and in my case have never turned it past 3 without getting too hot.

I ride with a couple that have always put the B&G on their bikes and on their 06 thay feel the heat just fine and have no complaints that I have heard.
