In short, yes. Both the T3i and T4i can use the same range of lenses.

Yes. You can use any Canon DSLR lens on the T3i.

Yes, it's the same mount. The only difference with the T4i in terms of lenses is the STM (STep Motor) technology. If you're buying a camera that has STM, then you should get at least one STM lens. The EF-S 18-135 STM lens is a great, all around lens.

I don't know if the T3i is compatible with EF-S lenses or just EF, but note that the T4i is compatible with both whereas most Canon EOS cameras are not compatible with EF-S. The difference is that the EF-S mounts the lens closer to the sensor.

Also note that the T4i and the T5i are exactly the same camera. There was a defect with the grip material on the T4i which was fixed, but the damage to the model's reputation made it so that reissuing the same camera with a different model number was a wise idea.
