The battery naturally looses it's capacity over time and also batteries differ some even if they are brand new so 96% isn't at all odd. Batteries also live longer if you don't charge them completely full and don't let them discharge completely.

in some cases, we can't fully charge old batteries. some vendor, namely IBM and lenovo, also limit their battery charging capacity to certain limit to increase battery lifetime.

my bad, sorry. AFAIK that's a bug of cinnamon's battery applet. I got that issue when I was using cinnamon too. I don't know how to fix it but it doesn't affect the system at all. the automatic suspend when battery is low is still working.
