In RAID-0, if ANY drive fails then you loose the data on ALL the drives in the same RAID set.

If you put all 4 drives into the same RAID-0 set, you loose all the data.

If you put 2 drives into one RAID-0 set, and the other two into another RAID-0 set, then if one drive fails you loose the data on both drives in THAT set, but the OTHER set continues to work OK.

Yes, you can have a single, non-RAID drive.
