Does anybody on fit do this?

My gym is only 0.75 miles/1.1 km, I usually just bike there and do cardio runs off days, but since switching to PPL six times per week, I find it more difficult to stick to cardio routine (two deadlift days, two squat/legs days). Should I just run there, as a warm-up? Or could it have a negative impact on my lifts? Could I do HIIT on the way back? Or would fit advice against running everyday, and alternating between running and biking depending on much legs are needed in the gym?

Running 1km shouldn't impact on your workout, in fact it should be a decent warmup. If you find yourself feeling fatigued in your legs doing it every day then just alternate. You can always go back to biking there if you want to...

Also would running 13km per week be enough?

Your heart certainly benefits greatly from running 13k a week. I don't think more is necessary.

Always save cardio for after lifting. You need all the energy you can spare lifting. You can always manage to run and even do HIIT afterwards but you definitely would have a harder time lifting after cardio

so does cardio shit like cycling would impact making gains/recovery, when i do cardio on off days ?

Cardio does not hurt gains, unless you're training for a marathon. Stop the meme already

Recommendation for optimal cardiovascular improvement is 30 minutes a day of aerobic activity. Studies show that breaking this up into smaller intervals (as little as 10 minutes), but still accumulating a half hour of activity daily, has the same positive effect. So between your run there and back and the without in between it sounds like that's a good plan. Raising your body temperature via a warm-up is actually recommended before lifting, but you should also be doing warm-up sets of whatever lift you're doing.

If you're really concerned with the cardiovascular aspect, mix in 30-60 minutes of moderate intensity (like 70% HRmax) cardio on any days you're not lifting. The only possible downside is that it may put you at a caloric deficit. As long as you're eating plenty it will actually be very beneficial to your workouts.
