BOXI R2 upgrade - can client and server be done at different times?

We are currently using an old version of BOXI R2 (MHF1+CHF14) on AIX with Windows XP clients using BOXI R2 Client Tools (Designer/Desktop Intelligence etc). We have several BOXI servers for Development, Test, PreProduction and Production and are discussing the approach to take to move to BOXI R2 SP4.

We would like to upgrade the Development server first and test that this does not cause any issues before rolling the upgrade out to test, preproduction and eventually production.

My query is about when do we upgrade the BOXI client software.

1. Will the current client work with the upgraded server?

2. Will an upgraded client work with the servers that are still on the old release?

3. Is it possible to have both versions of BOXI client on the same PC or would they have to be different PCs if this is required?

4. Would the answers to the above questions be different if we were to go to BOXI R3 rather than just BOXI R2 SP4?

Thanks in advance for your advice.
