As far as I know you would have not much problems with a board without mods/customizations or just lightly moded board. Some mods are compatible even with both versions some have upgrades ready and just need to be upgraded/ or reinstalled, however there are some mods that need to be upgraded and no one has made the vb4 compatible versions so... it depends how many and which modifications/customizations are you going to implement. Also vb3 skins won't work in vb4. So, at an early stage without any mods sure, there won't be a problem.

Personally, I favor vBulletin 4. It has to me a more modern feel and usually matches with what I am trying to accomplish. I also really like 3 as well. I would have no problem using either one. Really it would just depend on the project for me.

You may find that that's really only a matter of not being familiar with CSS over basic HTML. But when you start digging into CSS, you find that it's can be something of a major time saver. Not to mention, the overall benefits of CSS based layouts.
