2P30 breaker. Use #10 Romex or AC or MC, not the rubber cord between the panel and the outlet.

could I use 12/2 with a double pole 20 to a receptacle and keep the rubber cord on the heater.

yes you can. I read the size of the heater wrong. #12 on a 2P20 is all you need. Sorry.

thank you and I can use the 10/4 still on the heater

Ok, you need a NEMA 6-20P plug and a NEMA 6-20R receptacle.

Yes, it should be ok to keep the 10/4.

This should help you find the plug you need...
