How best to keep your 3-bets (light/heavy) disguised.

That depends on the villain you are facing. Generally speaking you want to 3bet light (bluffheavier) vs people who have a high Vpip and/ or a high Fold to 3bet percentage and tight (valueheavier) vs villains who don't.
As for a general strategy vs a vacuum I would always balance my 3bet/4bet range with bluffs, as if you don't you're opponents will have an easy time reading you're hands.
