I'll assume you have a flight to Zurich and also leave from there. Since you only have 4 days I would recommend to skip Zurich itself and go straight to Lucerne, which is closer to the mountains. If you arrive early in the day you may want to visit the town center of Zurich for a few hours before going to Lucerne. See myswissalps.com/lucern e for tips. You can easily stay 4 days here as there is plenty to see. Alternatively you could stay 2 days and spend the other 2 days near Interlaken/Jungfrau region or in Zermatt. Not both, as there's not enough time for that. If you can extend to 5 days I would definitely recommend that.
For traveling I'd recommend public transport: basically trains, and some boats, buses and cable cars. A 4-day Swiss Travel Pass makes sense, but there are more options. You first need an itinerary before deciding on the rail pass.
The links should get you started. I hope this was useful!
