Most of the stuff in HTML5 was in HTML4 aswell and browsers are super lax and will try to make sense of things, and so it probably won't look too terrible even if they don't know what <article> means. I say in 2016, it's perfectly safe to use most HTML5 features, unless you know for a fact that you need to support very old browsers (say, pre-2012?).

Not sure whether I should stick to HTML4? Are there any benefits or disadvantages to either?

HTML 5 is better than html 4. The addition of the header,footer,article, section, and aside tag makes it easy to style your page with CSS.
