Welcome to JA.
What would you like to know about the notice served on you?
Are they actually supposed to be serving notice on us during lockdown?
Yes they can serve the notice but it may be difficult to enforce it in court in the event you dont leave the property will be difficult. This is because the court will not be considering eviction application until August 2020. Please see the link below regarding this point.
This date may be extended again too so please pay attention to the news on this point.
It says on the section 21 notice I have to leave by sept 4th, which is exactly 3 months, does the section 8 follow the same rule?
Yes it does under the Corona Virus Act 2020 ut states 3 months must be given before court action is considered in the event the tenant does not leave the property by the 3 months notice period.
I hope I have clarified the position if not please let me know

Landlords can issue a section 21 notice anytime after the fixed agreement has ended. However they need to give you the minimum of 3 months notice.
Do you understand what I have stated if not please let me know

Please do not open a new question once rated as I will answer the question noted in this post.
You can leave earlier but I suggest you serve a counter notice giving a month notice.
Yes your landlord can still take you to court for the rent arrears even if you leave before the 4th of September.
That's a decision for the landlord to consider and there may be other reasons to consider court action I.e money to repair damage to the property he believes you have caused.
Alternatively he may think there is no point going to court and getting nothing in return after spending money on court fees because you cant afford to meet the payment requested.
