On some switches, there is an advantage to having devices that exchange a lot of traffic, connected to the same switching module as this usually reduces backplane congestion.
However on most modern Gigabyte switches that are 'managed', they will support maximum non-blocking traffic on all ports so i guess it should work depending on the hardware used.
Ethernet is not my game though, maybe someone has a better solution!

As long as they are switches, and as long as there is only one connection between each switch, it shouldn't be a problem. You want to avoid creating loops. Depending on how much traffic is going through the 4-port switches, you might see some latency. You're using Cat6 cable -- how fast are the switches?
