How should White continue in this position?
8. Nxc4 Qc7 9. Bg5 exd5 10. exd5 Bxc4 11. Bxc4 Qe5+ is one continuation.
8. Nxc4 Qb4 9. a3 Qb7 10. Bg5 Be7 11. Bxf6 gxf6 is another continuation. In both lines White has a nice edge.
Yes, white is better. 4...bxc4?! is a bad move; better alternatives are 4...Bb7 and 4...g6.
