I've already reached the level that connects to the Key Vault level, but when I try to go up, it won't let me go through. In other levels, there are these keys, but they are transparent and thus you cannot get it.

How do these keys and key vaults work?

To reach the Key Vault, you must reach an alternate exit in the adjoined level.

So how do you reach the alternate exit? You need to take the blue, '?' marked path when the route splits.

The catch is that you may need to take more than one, and if you miss a jump or one of the jump pads, you may fall back onto the main track, rather than get sent immediately back to your checkpoint.

The alternate exit looks like this:

Once you return to the map, the way to the key vault will be clear.

The Key Vault is a level within itself, and once you beat it, you will get a notification that you have unlocked the keys for that world. If you go back to the levels with that have keys on the goal list, you will now be able to collect them in order to simply collect certain items or unlock the alternate paths.
