But it's reasonable to assume that its gravity isn't much higher, because Vulcans still have a humanoid frame equivalent in height and build to humans.
It would have to be virtually the same - even minor differences would have an high impact on the evolutionary development of the species (there was a great BBC documentary on this very subject a few years ago but sadly it is not available online).
Hang on just one second.

You can't seriously be making inferences about Vulcan's gravity from the humanoid frame of Vulcans, can you—a frame which is astronomically unlikely for the Vulcans to have had in the first place, "Hodgkin's Law" notwithstanding?

Why not 1.4G?
