The documents are cross-platform so documents created on a Mac will open on Windows and vice versa. The one thing you need to careful of is making sure both computers have the same fonts on them. If you use TypeKit fonts from Creative Cloud, it won't be a problem. Similarly, you'll want to make sure both have any 3rd party plug-ins installed that you use regularly.
