I would consider myself in pretty good shape as i can run 3-4 miles without stopping but what is the best way to burn fat? Is it running slow then fast then slow again then fast and so on? or just running at a steady pace? And is it ok do to abs right after running?

Well running = you use energy. So obviously the best way to lose fat is to use a lot of energy. So the best way would be to run as long as you can at a high intensity.
But the reason why people are asking you about diet is because no matter how much running you do, if you at the end of the day have been eating so many calories that you are not in a deficit, you will have wasted your efforts running. You can't target fat, your body does that for you. You stay in a deficit and your body starts using stored fat as energy. If you run for, lets say 1 hr every day at a pretty fast pace, you can maybe burn about 800-1000kcals. If you end up using a total of 3500kcal including the cardio, but eat the same amount of calories, you won't be losing weight.

doesn't matter if you run or not, you have to be in a caloric deficit to lose fat. However, when your body is in a deficit, the best time is the morning (broscience??) or any other time, as long as you actually run.♛ PUNK AESTHETICS CREW™ ♛
