Playing this am in our local sectional open pairs this happened. 3 No Trump was alerted and explained as being 16-19 point with a long suit 3 No trump.

North went into a long long huddle and finally said pass. South vul. found a double then the director was called because of the long break in tempo. The bidding then proceeded pass 4 hearts pass pass 5 diamonds doubled. They missed defended and beat it two. The director rolled it back to 3 no trump down 4. With the A, K and a third club and a shift to the queen of hearts and avoiding blocking the heart suit and beating it 4. Since they are cold for 5 hearts you would think it would be above average. Not so  4.83 on a 15 top.

Is a heart return automatic?

yes
no
