I am a housewife but am currently employed for the period of 4 months, earning R4000 pm. After this 4 month period I will be unemployed. My employer does not deduct PAYE. I have two questions about my situation. First, do I need to register as a tax payer and do a tax return?

Secondly, can I have my salary paid into a joint bank account that I share with my husband or will this implicate him on his tax return? Should I rather open up my own bank account?

I am just not sure how I must proceed?

Your salary can be paid into whatever account you wish, the own bank account is for SARS refund purposes. The R16 000 that you earned will not be taxable as it falls below the tax threshold.
