I used M-4 so that I don't have to switch from Ctrl key to Alt key to do
M-^. By using M-4, I press Alt, then 4 and then ^ all the while keeping Alt
pressed. It just feels better typing that combo rather than C-u + M-^.

I don't think so. I don't recall if delete-indentation checks for just
presence of a non-nil prefix argument or checks if user hit C-u or C-u C-u.
If the function checked for just non-nil prefix, M-0 would also work. I
used M-4 just to be on the safe side.

Yes, join-line is an alias to delete-indentation.
