I am upgrading to Hardy on my "play" machine as I type.
As far as kde4 and kde3 together, yes, they can co-exist, and well. On my "play" machine I actually have Gnome (ubuntu-desktop), kde3 (kubuntu-desktop), kde4 (from launchpad) and enlightenment (provided by gOS) simultaneously installed and I have had no issues (except that the laptop is old and a piece of junk). I switch between the different desktops frequently and use the system for many random tasks. That said, I am not a full time user of this box.
As far as which desktop to use, Ubuntu is decidedly a Gnome distribution and that is its strength. I have always been a supporter of KDE but in Ubuntu I prefer Gnome and the desktop integration is great. I feel like the KDE version (Kubuntu-desktop) is much more of a raw version of KDE than is Gnome in the Ubuntu-desktop flavor. Of course, this is speaking from a standpoint of Gusty, but I'm certain Hardy will provide the same results.
