Please can you explain why There must be an extra 4 Gigs on a phone for the the system to work? Is this extra 4Gig occupied at every time or anytime?

See relating our Grand It has 8GB storage out of which 4Gb is system reserved and 4Gb is User Accessible. the 4Gb System memory will be hidden and will be used only for system purpose and it will occupied everytime that is 4Gb is alloted only to System u cant do anything to it. It has ROM , Recovery and other partitions which are vital to your phone. This can be seen when you Root your mobile. but don't touch that unless ur familiar what your doing or can create havok particularly efs.img were IMEI is stored. So don't access or modify it without knowledge of what you are doing...

CM11 based on 4.4.4 is great...but I dont think that the 4GB of missing memory is actually used by the system. I googled about it and many people have been complaining about missing internal memory on CM11 so I guess its a CMish problem..

Well no, its not a cm problem.
The thing is that our phone has fixed partitions for system and other necessary things(recovery, bootloader). It is not a dynamic system which adjusts to how much amount of space the rom is using. For example - the system partition takes 1.5 gb. Whether you use a touchwiz rom which uses up 1.2 gb or cm which uses less than 300 mb, the system partitin will be 1.5 gb. You cannot change this system partition to become data partition(this was possible in older devices like HTC Desire).
