The GP C-7 NANO is designed to work on 3S Lipo, so it should be fine. The only problem you might have is with arming, as it needs to be cycled from low to high throttle and back. Most other ESC's (eg. Blue Arrow PP-10C) just need low throttle to start.

You are correct that the red wire must be removed from the servo plug, to disable the BEC. The battery ground and servo signal ground are joined together inside the ESC, so no extra ground wire is required.

Actually if it comes to it I don't see any small-mA 4s batteries but I know how to connect 2 2s batteries in series.
I suggest using a small 3S Lipo. This will put out close to 12V, which is the correct voltage for those pumps/fans.
