SP4 can be applied on top of SP2. You do not have to install SP3 first.

After you have installed SP4, you should also install the Security Update that was released in October 2012. http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=34848. This is the most recent publicly available fix for SQL 2005 that I know of, and includes all fixes released in CU1 to CU3 and the June 2011 Security Update.
