"četl dopisy od dvanácti do čtyř" je zde předložka "ty" doopravdy z pohledu češtiny nezbytná?

ano, jinak je to jen "He was reading letters"

Is it possible to say "Četl ty dopisy od dvanácti do čtyřech hodin"?

Yes. It is a bit colloquial.

Is it possible to use 24-hour time ("do šestnácti") in a sentence like this?

It is. It is less common in informal communication.
