2×4’s will be plenty thick enough. I prefer a bench that is 18-20” deep but that is a personal preference. I had benches that were 30” deep and tore them out. You didn’t mention a bench design so you probably have that figured out. There are lots of designs, the one Ki7ty posted is a popular option. Most of them are going to boil down to a thick top that is flush with the legs and most of the variation will be in the understructure. Unless you go Scandi but those are out of style at the moment. The common recommendation on height is knuckle level for general purpose hand tooling.
