No! "If you hurry" is a dependent clause, not an independent one. There needs to be a comma after it, before the main (independent) clause.

In 1 and 2, 'what' is an interrogative pronoun introducing an indirect question. Do not use 3 or 4. They are both very awkward.

No. When reading that sentence aloud, just skip over the little c in a circle. It's just the symbol that means 'copyright,' so to read it would be repetitive.

1 and 2 are fine. 3 is very wordy (2 is far better!). In #2, "where they want to go" is a noun clause serving as the direct object after the verb (infinitive) "to get". http://www.grammar-monster.com/glossary/noun_clauses.htm
