The first thing to highlight is the game mode: Zoom. It is generally an aggressive game and you have to adapt a little more to that style. If you called preflop in position with AK, you have a great flop to always raise. There is no reason for defensive play here.
Therefore: flop and turn should be attacks on your part.
When a V over plays his hands like your opponent did, you have to take notes and use it to your advantage on the next hands.
In this case we have seen a V that has a lot of offense. The inverse equivalent of this should be: a player who over defends with dominated range (marginal bluffs catcher, as pockets pairs of low donomination for wet textures).
As played flop, on the turn it makes more sense to call in position. You just don't add extra value by raising when your opponent's range is capped.
However and as I said before, taking control and making the pot with competent hands like yours should be the first option in a game as volatile as zoom.
Finally the river as played on previous streets is a standard fold. The third heart on the table has been completed and your range is clearly dominated.
