The rule to remember for a sentence with two or more subjects is this: if you remove all but one of the subjects, it should still agree.
All of these are correct:
"He did it"
"I did it"
"He and I did it"
"He, Carol, and I did it"
"He and me did it" is wrong, because "me did it" is also wrong. "Me" is the object of a sentence, not the subject.
Likewise, if there are multiple objects, each one should make sense in the sentence by its own. All of these are correct:
"It happened to him"
"It happened to me"
"It happened to him and me"
Secondly, "I and he" is much less common than "he and I". This is usually explained as a matter of being polite and not grammar (you are politely putting the other party first in the sentence), but it's universal to the extent it might as well be a grammar rule.
