You can put both of the 4 pins in without a problem.
You'll notice when putting them in that they'll only work on the side that they're supposed to go.

You could also just use 1 4 pin, but I'd put in both of them.

What CPU are you using? is it 95W, 120W or 140W

To be sure, use all eight, especially for OCing

2 4-pin connectors is the same as an 8-pin connector?

Just remove that cover
