'On' is an adverb; it is part of the phrasal verb 'live on'. 'In' is a preposition; it is the beginning of the prepositional phrase 'in our hearts'. The two words are acting independently. We can also write these, for instance:

His memory lives on in Australia.
His memory lives on with his relatives.
We have a song in our hearts.
The victims had arrows in their hearts.
