If you are running RMAN on the primary RMAN will not delete archive logs on the primary if they are still needed on the standby, see Metalink note 374421.1 and other RMAN/Dataguard documentation. I believe the same is true if running RMAN on the standby but I have not tested this.

As far as removing archive logs on the standby, I just saw documentation on how to do this although I forgot to write it down and a quick search this morning didn't find it, anyone? I believe it is possible to configure RMAN to do this. It is also possible to have the OEM handle this as well. Unfortunately I don't have the documentation at my fingertips but some searching should find it.
