Neither are correct. If you have never heard of somebody you don't have to say that you haven't seen them. You just say 'I have never heard of him'.

Technically, the second one is correct. Although, if you are talking about someone you were expecting to see, it should be "from him": I never saw, nor heard from him. If are trying to say you don't know who someone is, it would be: I have never seen, nor heard of him.

Try not to be this anal. Let's say, they are actually totally the same.
