No, 3G radios will not work with 4G signals, just like a Verizon phone will never work on AT&T's network. Some phones coming onto market very soon, however, will likely have a 3G AND a 4G chipset, and so will work with both networks.
Expect those features to be heavily advertised ;)
Obviously Yes, in near future 3G mobile devices will work with 4G Networks. Number of research programs and interworking analysis are on going through LTE (Long Term Evolution).
