I have a 4 gb file I want to split into 1 gb files so it will fit on my USB drive so I can move it to my Windows machine. How would I do this?

If you're not afraid of the command-line, you can use "split", for example:
split -b 1024m thebigfile
And then on the Windows side use this to put them back together again:
type file1 file2 file3 > thebigfile

If you use the unix command to slit the files, how do you do it to recombine on a mac?

Almost the same as in Windows:
cat file1 file2 file3 > bigfile
