1/2CV^2 is the energy delivered to the gate, but in the process of charging it through a resistor you will also dissipate 1/2CV^2 (this is independent of the resistor value). Then when turning the fet off, the 1/2CV^2 stored in the gate capacitance will be dissipated in the driver. So your circuit overall consumes CV^2 per switching cycle.

Stepper motors ratings should be thought of mostly on terms of current. What voltage it takes to achieve that current is almost irrelevant. The rating of 4 V on your motor means that it can take a steady state of 4 V in stopped mode without burning up. But there is nothing wrong with briefly applying 30 V to overcome the inductance and get the c
