Responder’s rebid
I don't think there is a standard meaning, but it should be discussed in any serious partnership. My personal preference: 2: wide variety of hands with spade support 3 and 4 level should be more specific as they take away much space. My preference: 3: 13-15, 3 ...

is xx AKxx Ax AKQxx ok?
How do you play 5!h in this sequence?
sorry edited, one x too many compared to my thoughts. With only 6 hearts, 6NT is optimistic
How do you play 5!h in this sequence?
There is a very fine line between the first two answers. Just to be obnoxious, I'll give a counter example: Kxxx QJxxxx xx x holds a spade control but should not bid slam for obvious reasons.
