Claiming points for Spouse Skills


My husband has a positive assessment from ACS. His overall points are stuck at 55 since he can't claim points for IELTS as he does not have 7 in all the four bands. He is thinking of adding me to claim the extra 5 points required to qualify. I have a Masters degree from the US in Electronics and Comp Technology. I have about 2 yrs exp working in US and 10 months from India. However, I am not working since Dec 2012 to take care of our daughter. My questions are:
1. Do we need to show my work experience to claim points or would my Masters degree suffice?
2.If we need to show my work experience, would a general reference letter, offer letter, paystubs etc be fine or do we need to show a detailed reference letter that includes all the roles and responsibilities.
3. Do I have to take IELTS or since I already have Masters degree from US, which is an English speaking country

Thank you for your help in advance.
