Welcome to LJs!

If I’m understanding correctly, this floating vanity has walls on three sides around it.

If that’s the case, screwing it into the framing on all three sides will be plenty to support a 24” front, so long as the whole assembly is sufficiently stiff. Having a strong frame and cross bracing will help there, but brackets in the corners couldn’t hurt either.

Your instinct is right that you need 3.5-4” screws. Personally, I’d use beefy 1/4” lag bolts rather than wood screws. Be sure to pre-drill the holes to avoid splitting the wood.
