I do not own a 4k monitor but I would think that 4k would work on any OS. I'd advise getting Windows 8.1 though because games are more optimized for it.

Are there any benchmarks for 4k gaming between windows 7 and windows 8? I have not been able to find anything as of yet.

I don't know of any just heard people talking about it. But it shouldn't be a huge performance difference.

Go for personal preference, performance difference will be negligible

Windows 8.1 DPI scaling is better though, which could be a concern at 4K
