    The first one looks quite common and acceptable. In the second question, the second and third options can be accepted. In my view it is a matter of style.

    "We only have four employees"/"There are only four people employed here".

    The others have all left!

    Only those shops with the accepted status will be displayed.

    Try:
    Only four people work here. The rest have left.
    (The rest?)

    The second question is :how do we say this question: only the shops having the status/with a status/ that have a status will be displayed.
    Re:

    It is unclear to me what that means.
