I have a 4-port ethernet switch connected to my router.

Should it show up on the router under "Attached Devices"? 

My computers, NAS, phones etc all show up, but not the switch.  Switch doesn't appear to have a MAC either.

Not normally, no.  I believe only devices with an IP address show up.

Switch is usually quite simple device that just redirect packets to ports according their destination mac addressess (if it's good one, some "hubs" just send every packet to every port :). They do not have any mac themselves and do not appear anywhere.  Usually routers have 4-port switch embedded.

Only a managed switch will show.
