Surely a player of your bridge skills is familiar with most or all of the following tips you are about to read. But is your partner?
When responding to an opening bid with two four-card majors, respond 1♥ and give partner a chance to rebid 1♠. If partner doesn't rebid 1♠, assume partner does not have four spades and bid accordingly. You hold: ♠ AJxx ♥ KQxx ♦ Jx ♣ xxx
Rebid 2NT and limit your hand to 11-12 HCP. Do not rebid 2♠. Partner does not have 4♠.

LAW 48 ‐ EXPOSURE OF DECLARER’S CARDS
A. Declarer Exposes a Card Declarer is not subject to restriction for exposing a card (but see Law 45C2), and no card of declarer’s or dummy’s hand ever becomes a penalty card. Declarer is not required to play any card dropped accidentally.
B. Declarer Faces Cards 1. When declarer faces his cards after an opening lead out of turn, Law 54 applies. 2. When declarer faces his cards at any time other than immediately after an opening lead out of turn, he may be deemed to have made a claim or concession of tricks (unless he demonstrably did not intend to claim), and Law 68 then applies.
Law 45C2: Declarer is deemed to have played a card from his hand if it is: (a) held face up, touching or nearly touching the table; or (b) maintained in such a position as to indicate that it has been played.
