Yes as long as all your devices on the network support IPv6 such as firewalls, routers, printers, etc.

Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and Windows Server 2008 R2 are fully tested by Microsoft to support running in IPv6-only mode.

So by running "netsh interface IPV4 uninstall" or unchecking the IPV4 protocol in the network connection will disable the protocol?

Correct. Hint: don't uncheck the box, just run the netsh command. It's easier and more effective.
