It looks premature to exclude a slam - partner could still have 17 HCP and you have no shortage of controls.
4H bid does not necessarily exclude a slam as opener now knows that responder is confident to bid 4H even facing a poor 11/12 HCP. and with the possibility of 1C a prepared bid.

My bid over 1H is 4H.Shows a 7loser hand with good support.Opener had S-xxxx,,H-KQxx,D-Kx,C-KQx. Over partners 1/2 Spade over 1H .what is he supposed to bid? 1S1NT/2S ? And 2S3S/2NT,? one does not get any nformation by bidding 1/2S unless its a fixed partnership .Isnt it?Please correct me If vice versa.As also how do you propose to continue after any of the above responses by opener over 1S/2S ?

I agree with this-though a lot of people do not. Over 1 I would make the simple bid of 4 . Playing partner for a perfect minimum is one thing. Playing partner for a perfect maximum is not good bridge-it is greed.
As he puts it, you run into a rebid problem if partner makes a fourth suit forcing bid.
