Ni hau ma, Hisun :) It would be more common to ask "isn't it heavy?", especially in North America. I wouldn't be surprised to hear more "is it not heavy?" in England or Australia. Asking "is it not heavy?" in North America might make you sound like a guy from China learning English... :D Either way, both are correct.
