"Yes, there is such a thing a separate property. Separate property is A. Anything brought into the marriage. B. Anything acquired during the marriage by gift or inheritance, and held in separate name. C. Proceeds of a personal injury award (such as from auto accidents, slip and fall, etc.). D. Disability pensions (but just the portion for disability, not the ordinary pension part). E. Anything purchased with the sale or trade of separate property.
So nope. You have no rights to his inheritance, even if he got it while you were married.

Since you are not legally divorced, whats his is yours right?? I think the two of you need to make an appointment with a mediator. If the inheritance is not under your husbands name then you don't get it.

You really should just talk to a lawyer about this. Hiding money from you,where ever it came from and your still married. I would think you should get some of it. But I am not a lawyer.
