Is there such thing as too much green tea? That's pretty much all I drink. Usually 4-5 mugs a day.

Yes: As the song goes, "Too much fun what's that mean? It's like too much money, there's no such thing. It's like a girl too pretty, ..." But for everything else in life, do in moderation. Plain green tea at 4 mugs of 12 ounces each day sounds ok. That means without creamers, sugars, or other sweeteners... and without tapioca pearls (boba). Drinking plain green tea is better than drinking sodas.

What health benefits are associated with drinking green tea?

This means the green tea substitutes for other food/drink that contains calories. If one continues to eat /drink other foods and drinks that contain calories, and is not using the green tea to substitute for some calories, then the tea will not help with fat reduction.

Will drinking green tea reduce a fever?

Will drinking green tea reduce a fever?

Probably Not: Green tea certainly has anti-oxidant properties, but most do not have the anti-inflammatory properties that reduce fevers. (however, the liquids will help if you have a fever.) I suppose there may be some formulations of green tea mixed with other herbals that due have anti-fever properties, however, drink these as with caution as they likely could have have other side effects.
