I feel like an extra comma is needed in the statement below, but I'm not sure. I'm also wondering whether there's already too many commas.

Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication, and most of all, your warm caring heart.
Do I need a comma between "warm" and "caring"? Is this statement even written properly?

Yes, you want a comma after "warm". You also either want one after "and", or else need to drop the one after "all": commas, like policemen, often go about in pairs. An alternative is the underused dash:

Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication, and most of all your warm, caring heart.
It lowers the comma pile-up and better emphasis the thought.

I would agree that the dashes are better (although I only use one at a time - with a space either side - even if some purists reckon that, grammatically, it is not the way to do it).
I would also consider brackets.
"Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication, and (most of all), your warm caring heart."
It is debatable whether a comma (the 'Oxford Comma') is needed after "dedication". Some recommend that it should be avoided (if possible). http://punctuateaware.co.uk /
Finally, as "for" is a long way back, near the beginning of the sentence, I think I would consider repeating it before the final "your". It just sound better.
"Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication and (most of all), for your warm caring heart."

The comma after "all)" should be removed; the closing parenthesis already separates "most of all" from the rest. I think a comma should separate "warm" and "caring", because you could write "warm and caring heart" or "caring and warm heart".

Yes, that indeed would be correct. My mistake.

Strictly speaking, yes, as 'correct' grammar says that you should have comma(s) between two or more adjectives. But there are those who feel that, sometimes, the comma is often superfluous - unless it is needed to emphasise what would be, in any case, a natural slight pause between the adjectives. Personally, on this occasion, I don't think that a comma adds much to the reading or the meaning. (Sorry for all the commas!)

Looks fine to me except I would remove the second, third and fourth "your"

Grammar has nothing to do with the typography of dashes nothing and the typography of dashes is governed primarily by typesetting, not typing, although what computers can do blurs the line between the two. When I were a lad studying typing (on an L.C. Smith upright), we were taught to use two consecutive hits of the "-" key to generate a dash, with no space at either end. But the form of a single "-" with spaces on either side (and there's a large recent thread about "either side" available in either AEU or AUE) conveys the same message: "There's a dash here."
I would also consider brackets. "Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication, and (most of all), your warm caring heart."

In which case you don't need the comma after the phrase in round brackets (or as we Murricans call them, "parentheses" (no joke)).

You can find crackpots anywhere.
More seriously, large groups of people line up on both sides of the serial ("Oxford") comma question. We're not going to resolve the debate here.
Finally, as "for" is a long way back, near the beginning of the sentence, I think I would consider repeating it before the final "your". It just sound better.

It just sound as if you lost the grammatical thread halfway through. If you want a "for" before the final "your," you need an "and" before the penultimate "your."
"Thank you for your kindness, your empathy, your dedication and (most of all), for your warm caring heart."

Oy!

I wouild carry on and remove 'and most of all your warm caring heart'. 'Thank you for your kindness, empathy and dedication', says it all without descending into what strikes me as soppy meaningless nonsense.

When I get into situations similar to the one that concerns you, I generally find my sentences are too long. Consider breaking it into two sentences that are clear and concise. Since you said "most of all", it may add emphasis by being in its own sentence, like:

Thank you for your kindness, empathy and dedication. Most of all, thank you for your warm, caring heart.
