MAGOOSH PREP says all the above are correct
Manhattan Prep keeps the "from" idioms in SUSPECT

I am a bit confused.

It's always good to look at official problems when you're trying to figure out something like this!

1. distinguish between A and B is definitely correct. It's used in the non-underlined section of OG2018 problem 769.

2. This doesn't appear in any problems in the OG2018. There was a very old problem (OG11) that claimed that this was incorrect. I'm not sure what the current status of it is, which is probably why it's listed as 'suspect'. My own intuition says it's correct, and I can't find any sources clearly saying that it's considered wrong. I'd say that if you saw this in a problem, you should look for another issue to work with.

3. This isn't in any OG2018 problems either, but it's probably fine, given that 1. is correct.

4. This isn't in any OG2018 problems, but it sounds very strange to me. Anybody else? My guess is that this is wrong, but again, I don't have a clear source for you.

dinstinguish/distinction between A and B is the only correct form, rest all are frequently used though but are incorrect versions.
