You do not need to accumulate Hearts in the case of Umbreon like you have to do for evolving other Pokemon in the game.
You just have to pick your Eevee to make it your Buddy in the game, and then you will require to walk with it for about ten kilometers. Then you receive ten Eevee candies in the game. Then, when the time for evolution arrives, prefer to do the evolution process during the night which will automatically increase your chances of getting an Umbreon evolution.

Another thing that will help you be more sure about receiving an Umbreon in exchange for Eevee during the evolution is by using the Eevee nickname trick. For Eevee’s evolution, there are some specific nicknames that are available that help transform Eevee into its particular evolutionary forms.
In the case of Umbreon, you will need to change the nickname of Eevee to “Tamao” before you go for evolving it. This way, when the time for evolution comes, you will receive an Umbreon.
Do not forget that this nickname trick can be applied only once for each Eevee. So, if you have already used the trick in an Eeveelution, you will need to choose another Eevee to evolve by using this trick otherwise the trick won’t work.
That is how to catch Umbreon in Pokemon Go, otherwise, if you set out to find an Umbreon in the wild in its already evolved form, then, sorry to say, but that is not going to happen. So, no matter what, to get an Umbreon, you will first need to find an Eevee and own it.
