You can't make videos and then six months down the line, delete them or set them to private They have to remain public to count.

Secondly, you have to achieve 4,000 hours

in 12 consecutive months. What that means is, from today, whatever today's date is, going back 365 days, that is the watch time that is counted. The videos don't need to have been published in the last 12 months, it's what's being watched on your channel in the last 12 months.
