It is normal though at 3 or 4, she is more than capable of understanding anything you tell her. She may not believe you (where do babies come from) and will not process the information the same way that you or I do (why you should always use the potty) but you can explain just about anything.
For discipline, consistency is the key. I read the book "1,2,3 Magic" and really liked it. The approach is simple. While getting naughty behaviour under control is the main point of the book, the authors point out that praise and attention are the best ways to prevent naughty behavior in the future and they give good advice for balancing the two.
