Yes, both Federer and Sampras have been known to ace 4 serves in a row. I believe Tsonga may have done it in the final game of AO 2008 vs. Nadal too? Not sure about the last one.

Becker once served 5 aces in a row at 0-40.

Plenty of times, at least where the aces are concerned. I've seen Roddick serve four consecutive aces several times, Federer at least a couple, and Querrey once had two consecutive service games each consisting of four aces in a match against James Blake.

Sam Querrey holds the record for most consecutive service aces since the ATP began keeping records of those statistics, with ten.

Sam Querry hit TEN consecutive aces when defeating Blake back in 2007.

I've seen Coria lose his serve only by making consecutive double faults. I guess Verdasco also made 4 DFs in a row versus Nadal recently when he was winning that second set by 4-0 (he then lost it, 7-5).

Greg Rusedski hit 5 double faults in a row against Mikhail Youzhny at the 2006 ATP Masters Series Miami. He went on to win the match 6-3 6-1.
He trailed 3-1 after three double faults in his first service game and two more in his second.

Becker once served 5 aces in a row at 0-40.

I recall that, it was indoors. I know Sampras served 4 aces in a row to open his 1998 Wimbledon match vs Enqvist, and 3 to open his 2nd service game, so he won the 1st 7 points on serve with aces.

Stich 1993 YEC F vs Sampras (4th set)
Sampras 1995 US Open F vs Agassi (2-3 in 4th set)
Becker 1996 YEC F vs Sampras (1st game of the match)
Federer 2007 YEC SF vs Nadal

These are some I recall. Double faults, see Coria or Kournikova.

Fed vs Nadal TMC 07. That was funny. Fed won 0-30 and then serves 3 straight aces. LOL
