    Life Drain is independent of strength.

    HP regeneration is amplified by 0.71% per point of strength, yes. But Life Drain does not give HP regeneration; rather it is a heal. The two use slightly different mechanics. HP regen is what all heroes have naturally and can be increased by abilities like Dragon Blood and items like Ring of Regen. It updates ten times per second, so if you have 1.5 HP/sec regen, you gain 0.15 HP every 0.1 seconds. Only this type of health gain is amplified by strength.

    This is in contrast to ordinary heals like Shadow Word, Cheese, or Life Drain. These do not get amplified by str, though they can still be amplified by Ghost Shroud, False Promise, or Soul Release on an ally. A list of abilities that provide HP regen can be found here. How it is decided which abilities should give regen and which should just heal, I'm not sure.
