Wood stove hearth pads are generally specified by the manufacturer of the stove. They will give minimum size and minimum R-value (resistance to heat flow) for the pad. Some stoves do not throw much heat downward or their fireboxes are higher off the floor, in which case they might only specify that the hearth pad just be non-combustible material (glass, steel or tile). Older stoves that have not been tested or listed, are subject to a whole different set of rules, outlined in a publication called NFPA 211. You can see a condensed version here. Whatever your situation, just ask us for help sorting all of this out for you.
Gas stoves can pretty much sit on anything other than carpet or linoleum, in fact in most situations, a hearth pad is not required. One reason you might consider using a hearth pad under a gas stove is for the overall effect; trying to mimic the way a wood burning stove would look, or maybe to get the stove higher off the floor with a raised hearth pad.
