1. Use "between you and me".
2. Use "between him and me".
3. Right.
4. Use "between her and me".

"Between" is a preposition here, demanding the object form of a pronoun.

Thank you, Chuncan Feng, for a clear and succinct answer.

Using the subject pronoun instead of the correct object pronoun is a frequently heard error. It is often used, even by educated people, because they think it sounds more formal, and therefore correct, but this is not true.
