I played this game yesterday in an OTB tournament, I was black.
I'll continue later..
7.c4 is not an accurate move- Black equalises by 7...e5.
7.0-0 is more testing. A game of mine against GM Grivas:
Same position, via a different move order. White had a very comfortable advantage, which I destroyed with the silly 29.g4? after which the game is dead equal.
IMO Black's best is 4...a6. White is supposed to have "something" via 5.Be3 Nc6 6.Qb6, but in reality he has nothing at all.
I completely agree with 5...Bd7, my move was inferior.
During the game I overvalued the e file and didn't want to make my LSB a tall pawn. So I decided not to play g6 but as you said after Nd5 I can simply play Nxd5 relocate my bishop via c8-f5, and defend e7 with Ra7 or Re8 if necessary easily. I think black might even have the upper hand after solving these problems thanks to the bishop pair.
I agree that 4...a6 makes a lot of sense and can get white out of his comfort zone easily.
I don't understand why e5 is better than c5 though, I might be mistaken but both 10...e6 and 10...g6 seems fine for black.
Is this end position winning?

Black seems to have a decisive advantage, but how does he convert it?
