There are by now a lot of papers on discretizations of Heston. One objective of them being to avoid negativity. As has already been said, the Heston SDE has no negative solutions, but a crude discretization does give negative variance with positive probability. If you want to do small steps, then using a log-normal approximation or the QE approximation ...
