The 4WD only works when it is selected and is disabled when not selected.
Does front hub has auto or manual locking hubs?
When you are not able to turn the left CV shaft with gears in neutral, the likely cause would be the locking hubs. You need to check if it is stuck and if it is manual, check if it is in the free position.
It would cause the dragging problem.
As to the slipping, there is a possibility the clutch is beginning to fail and in H2 and H4, it would tend to slip easier due to the higher gear ratio. With L4, the lower gear ratio would cover up the slippage.
If the slippage is from the clutch, the problem is going to get worse over time.
