No. 1

“Such” is correct, because it is a qualifying adverb modifying “heavy” – how heavy? Such that the chair is not easy to carry. “Much” is an adjective and (even though it looks like “such”) is not grammatically related.

 

No. 2

“So” is correct because it is a qualifying adverb modifying “pleased” – how pleased?   So pleased that I ran to tell my mother.  “Very” is an adverb also, but not a “qualifying” adverb.

 

These small words are confusing to new language learners but can be explained grammatically.  Native speakers have no trouble differentiating among them because they have heard them in speech patterns.
