How many amps will a 4000 watt generator run?

You need to be over 11,000 watt. There are whole house generators. A typical US home 120VAC circuit protected by a circuit breaker can provide a total of 15 Amps - 1800 watt total to multiple loads plugged into the multiple outlets on the end of the line.
