Redoing my upstairs master bedroom and bathroom/ walkin closet... Just a quick question about wiring... Looking to put in 4 light fixtures, and 3 receptacles, plus a line for a heated shower bench. There is 14/2 already run from the panel box (I think two lines)... How many fixtures can one line junction/ split into... ?Is it best to keep fixtures connected to one wire in separate rooms or the same room? Should they be all lights or receptacles? Just looking for the best option here... Or should I run more 14/2 wiring?

We need to know your location. Put it in your profile.
It makes a huge difference as the bathroom and bedroom rules are VERY different between Canada and USA.

I am in southwestern Ontario, Canada... Sarnia to be specific.

12 devices(lights, fans, receptacles, bench warmers, etc) per circuit maximum.
Bedroom receptacles must be AFCI. Other stuff can be on AFCI but not required to be.
Smokes must NOT be on the AFCI.
Tamper receptacles required.
There is no requirement to keep lights and receptacles separate.
The bench warmer depending on the wattage could go on any of the branch circuits.
Receptacles within 1.5m of the sink must be GFCI.
No requirement to keep bathroom separate from any other circuits.
