As the Eagle says, some coaches don't call at all terminals - though I don't think
this applies to the Southampton route.
The Heathrow to Southampton service does have different calling points depending on the time of day - some call at Basingstoke, some at Winchester, some at Southampton University - but this makes no difference to folk travelling to Southampton coach station.
I recall that for one route from Heathrow, the website offered just one service daily from T5. And failed to mention that there were half-a-dozen other daily services to the place from Heathrow central bus station !!!
Another example of their poor website.
Don't know about their regulations re boarding at a different terminal, other than that if your ticket is from central bus station & you don't turn up there, your seat might be allocated to a stand-by if the coach is fully booked.
Or if no-one has booked from T4 the coach may simply by-pass it.
But since you have tickets from T4 & that's the easiest place for you to board, no worries.
