    Yes, you can. You will need to re-assemble the hub and spindle nuts like you would if the axle shaft was in there, but it is perfectly fine to remove the shaft and drive it.

    I wouldn't engage 4x4.

    May want to find a way to plug the axle tube so you aren't puking out gear lube around the corners.
