Why is neither correct? I think this is correct.

I've been reading/playing/doing something during the last four hours.

"During" is very unnatural and nonnative there. Use "for" instead: "I've been reading for the last four hours."

Why can't DURING be used in my original sentences?

Grammatical or not, your sentence is hideously unnatural. Use "for the next __ hours." No native speaker would ever say "during the ___ hours from now on."
