I have done some research online and some people claim dump/restore have good ext4 support and others claim the system is broken and restores come back corrupt. My question is, do they work well together, in your experience?

Yes, dump works just fine with ext4. Of course, make sure you are using the latest version of it. You also could easily test this yourself.
