That’s right. See https://zope.readthedocs.io/en/4.x/zope4/migration/index.html for detailed information.

The documentation says to use virtualenv instead of venv on Python 2.7, see

When using plain Zope Ctrl-C on the command line should be enough.
There is no button in the UI any more because the web server is no longer part of Zope itself. Instead you are able to use a WSGI server of your choice.
See https://zope.readthedocs.io/en/4.x/wsgi.html#choosing-wsgi-server-software for recommandations and example configurations.

Mit herzlichen Grüßen
