Against a good declarer you shouldn't be able to read whether the second card was higher or lower or partners remaining two reliably.

I am basically only allowed to bid 2D if I intend to follow through with showing the hearts after most low level actions like this one.

I'd have doubled 1S and saved myself this problem.

Do I not play fit jumps? Would have made a fit jump opposite 1D.

I'd have opened 1S. I dislike opening 2C with extreme shape.

This just seems like a routine last train situation. Although it depends a bit on whether you play serious/frivolous 3N. If you play serious its not mandatory to cue if you judge your hand to be a min, I wouldn't, but I can understand 4S. If You play frivoulous then 4d makes it mandatory to cue if you can, and 4H is the bid.

I think 5C implies a club void, you have 4H to show a club control and why bypass keycard? For 5C to make sense you would have to not be playing last train.
