Yeah, right click the workspaces in the lower right hand corner and click preferences. Change columns to four.

You can also change it in Compiz Settings Manager. Under General, click the Desktop Size tab and change Horizontal Virtual Size to 4.

Did you turn on Desktop Cube in Compiz Settings Manager?

I have noticed that too, but only if the screen is maximized.

By default, hold down Ctrl+Alt and the left mouse button and move along the trackpad. Make sure you have Rotate Cube turned on in Compiz Settings Manage. To get the reflection make sure Cube Reflection and Deformation is turned on.
