actually however and nevertheless are interchangable;therefore, if you want to exchange nevertheless for however, there will be no grammatic mistake to the change.
However, there is a subtle difference in the meanings.
To be exact,
However~ implies discord based on additional, unstated points
Nevertheless~ implies discord with stated, preceding points
She is a wonderful woman and I care for her very much. However, I would prefer to mary her sister.
However in this usage implies that in spite of the lady's fine characteristics, and for other unstated reasons, I choose not to be her mate.
She is a wonderful woman and I care for her very much. Nevertheless, I would prefer to mary her sister.
In this case the meaning has shifted slightly towards a simple declaration that "Nevertheless=despite her qualities and my affection".
