Canadian PR married USA H1b visa filed separately

I became Canadian Permanent Resident in 2015 and I was single- filed my taxes individually. I got married in 2016 to USA H1 B visa holder. 

Me and my husband were since our marriage in 2016 were working and living in separately in USA and Canada and were/are not supporting each other financially. 

My status in USA was H4 ( I have never worked in USA)

My husband was a visitor in Canada ( he has never worked in Canada)

But while he was filing taxes in USA, he declared married but spouse has zero income in USA-----is that right or wrong?

When I declared my taxes in Canada, i declared married but provided CRA his W2--- is that right or wrong?

My husband used Turbotax to file and I used authorized rep ( Licensed CPa) to file my taxes but we are not sure if we filed our taxes right or wrong-- So we want someone to review our last 3 years to see if any amendment is needed and what are the consequences of that.

People come to TurboTax AnswerXchange for help and answers—we want to let them know that we're here to listen and share our knowledge. We do that with the style and format of our responses. Here are five guidelines:

  1. Keep it conversational. When answering questions, write like you speak. Imagine you're explaining something to a trusted friend, using simple, everyday language. Avoid jargon and technical terms when possible. When no other word will do, explain technical terms in plain English.
  2. Be clear and state the answer right up front. Ask yourself what specific information the person really needs and then provide it. Stick to the topic and avoid unnecessary details. Break information down into a numbered or bulleted list and highlight the most important details in bold.
  3. Be concise. Aim for no more than two short sentences in a paragraph, and try to keep paragraphs to two lines. A wall of text can look intimidating and many won't read it, so break it up. It's okay to link to other resources for more details, but avoid giving answers that contain little more than a link.
  4. Be a good listener. When people post very general questions, take a second to try to understand what they're really looking for. Then, provide a response that guides them to the best possible outcome.
  5. Be encouraging and positive. Look for ways to eliminate uncertainty by anticipating people's concerns. Make it apparent that we really like helping them achieve positive outcomes.
