If you're going USB: Install Kies and make sure to select the Drivers Install option. Kies may also download an update after installed.
Close Kies if it opens after installation completes. Connect the phone to the PC and wait for the "new hardware found" drivers to install, S4 to appear under Devices, and the USB symbol appears on the phone. Now launch Kies and see if you get better results.

Kies WiFi: No tips here other than Kies must already be running to connect this way.

Other than that, Kies is horrible with the S4. You'd have better odds in Vegas, LoL.

The Samsung Cloud will back up everything Kies does (Call Logs, SMS, S-Apps). Between that and Google keeping the calendar and contacts, you're all set. If you really want to back up app data, TBP is the way to go.

If you don't mind them going to Google+, you can also use Google for your gallery. Other than that, go for DropBox's 50GB and copy stuff there. Camera pics will be backed up automatically.

Keep trying. It's never consistent. It'll work one day and then be stuck at connecting the next. There's nothing wrong with your PC since it is registering the phone correctly.
