He must not swallow her saliva in order to maintain his fast. He should also avoid passionate kissing that would arouse him sexually to prevent the discharge of semen/mani which would invalidate his fast.

Ibn Qudamah (ra) said, “Or if he swallows the saliva of another, his fast is broken due to swallowing saliva that’s not his, which would hold a similar ruling as swallowing anything else.”
