If I don't have much work or less than 8 hours of work a day, what should I charge on DTE to make it 8? Currently I have one project where I charge 4 hours then rest of 4 hours at GAA. Is that right?

Speak to your manager. If you're staffed full time in a project, you should charge 8 hours whether you have work or not. Or else you're bringing down your utilization unnecessarily. It's not like you'll charge 8-10 hours if the work gets hectic

Check if you get another assignment to work the other 4 hours. Your utilization is going to take a massive hit or else

Yes that is alright if u r in internal services. Just be honest. U can also do learning and put time in learning.

Charge 8 hours blindly. One of the members charged 5 hours a day for a month and he received hell lot of excelsheet work in return.

8 to project and 8 to GAA is fine…

That’ll just lower your util and ultimately lower your bonus, try and talk to you manager about it! You are expected to charged 8 hours (on client code) minimum everyday.
