#1 & 2. Manchurian Bush Warbler. It seems large and well marked, so probably a male.

#3 & 4. I think you must be right with Richard's. The breast streaking seems unusually dark in the photos, but maybe that is due to the lighting and it could be subspecies sinensis (which is more marked than other subspecies).
It doesn't look like any of the smaller pipits to me (on structure or extent of streaking). Blyth's is feasible but would be exceptionally rare (I don't think there are any Macau records, and only a couple from Hong Kong).
