They can be as dark and as light as you wish - there are no hard and fast rules.
The greater the range of tones, the more interest (generally speaking) because when using very dark against very light you'll create drama.

Not sure what you mean by 'heavier' in w/c - basically the same principles apply.

You need a full range of light and dark.
