I talk for Annie against Vlad since well... I have seen that happen a lot. When Annie releases her ult (we all know it's tibbers) on you when you're on puddle form. You will not take damage from the ult at the start, nor while you're still in puddle form. But you'll will be stunned due to the ult landed on where you would have been if you're not in a puddle form. It's probably not a glitch since the ult is based as if she summoned tibbers to land on the ground where he was summoned.
As for the match between Anvira vs Vlad. The best you can do is what the other posts is saying. Do more damage than the amount he's doing to you as he q. That way, he'll be forced to flee if he's low on health and knows that you can kill him off easily.
During the first 30 secs, you may want to hasten your initial item build if you know you'll be facing Vlad in the middle lane. Sapphire crystal is a good one although you'll still need to control the amount of mana used during the fight between him and you. Also try to use your q to last hit minions and hit him that way if you miss, at least it's not a wasted effort. That's all I can think of now.
