Questions regarding how Superman's powers work and what role Krypton's gravity has on him rumble on eternally, writers still like to remind us that Krypton's high gravity plays a part in what he can do but never actually explain what it is that the gravity differential does for him...
But check out one of the earliest Superman Origins and actually, it all makes a neat sort of sense:

Now that's how it should be. \(pirate\)

...Flight is a "muscular power" but not "invulnerability". Hum...

Still, like others have said, if gravity ever played any role in his powers, few writer, if any, were keen enough to portray it coherently. 

For one, Superman should have weighted a lot more while on earth since he was taking the same space as an adult earthling but comprise of much denser material. Also, the ray of any star should never had any impact on his "muscular powers". At least never to make him merely human. At the very worst he would still have be made of much denser material. Even on Krypton... and any human setting foot on Krypton would be flatten like a pancake.
