When in gallery and sharing an image via Gmail, it gets converted to a JPG file instead of staying as an HEIC image.
Is there any way to have this behave differently?

A bit roundabout but possible:
From gallery, select the photos > tap Share > Save to Files.
Go to Files app > tap More (3-dots icon) > Select > select the photos > tap More (3-dots) > Compress. This will zip them.
Attach the zip file to Gmail and send. The recipient can download and unzip it to get HEIC images.
