Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Very, very possible.  With my first, I thought I was nuts, and so did my mom.  But it just never stopped.  With my second, also at 4 months, I knew what it was and what it felt like.  Some babies are pretty active, which is normal, and others are more mellow.  Later on, [7 months for example] if you haven't felt him/her move at least a few times throughout the day, then you need to call your doctor.  At that point, when he/she is so big [almost completely viable], no movement whatsoever could mean he/she's having problems. 
It is quite normal for you to feel the baby kick or move.  This will start in most pregnancies between 13-16 weeks. When you are between 20-30 weeks everyone will be able to feel the baby kick.  My baby has started to kick where everyone can feel it and I am only 23 weeks right now.  I hope this helped.
