Ron, 

Recording for four hours if you keep the Audacity project rate at 
44100 Hz should be fine as regards Audacity, if you have the disk
space available. Audacity can record up to 13.5 hours at 44100 Hz. 

To see how much disk space you have, CTRL + P then go to the 
Directories Preferences and observe the free space in the Audacity
temporary directory. For a four hour stereo recording you need 4.8 GB 
of space to make the recording, then every time you edit the whole 
track you need another 4.8 GB of space. If necessary, go to the Quality
Preferences and change Default Sample Format to 16-bit. That means 
you only need half as much space.

Export to most formats should be OK, but if you export to WAV or AIFF
you will be limited to a file size of 2 GB in most applications. If the 
WAV or AIFF was 44100 Hz 16-bit stereo (the default WAV and AIFF 
exports are 16-bit), then that takes 10 MB of space per minute, so 
the maximum length of that file would be 3 hours 20 minutes.
