1. I think, you can make use of longtable package for your subtables
to break across pages.  longtable supports breaking tabular across

2. You can have four subtables in four separate table environment with
a \clearpage in between table environments.  But you need to reset the
table counter in each table after the first table with the command:


so that the counter remains the same in all tables.  You might have
the \caption from second subtable onwards like:

 \caption{Continued or <whatever>}

Will the above help you?

Happy TeXing and best regards
