Can I connect all 6 fans together and then power them with one 4 pin cable from my PSU?
There really isn't a right or wrong way to hook up fans. It's whatever works best in the situation. If they all turn on, and you're happy with it, then it's right. Power is power, regardless if you get it from one connector or 4 connectors.
EDIT: Keep in mind though, if you have it plugged straight into the power supply it will just run on full blast all the time. If you hook it up to the motherboard, it will be controlled by the computer.
