The 1083 is not capable of displaying anything other than 15KHz native Amiga screen modes. Do *not* connect an RTG card or scandoubled Amiga video to it, as it might damage the monitor.

Yes, installing 3.1.4 on top of 3.1 should work fine. I don’t know the particularities of Classic Amiga Workbench, so just make sure to do a backup first in case something unexpected happens.
