Solution 1

Your script is in the header where it will be run as soon as it is loaded - which is before the canvas element has been added to the document.

You need to wait until the document has loaded before trying to use getElementById(). The easiest way is to wrap your code in an onload handler:
window.onload = function() {
  var c = document.getElementById("myCanvas");
  ...
  ... // more code here...
}
