$\frac{1}{4}$, 1
A term is composed of a numerical coefficient and a variable. The numerical coefficient is the constant in front of the variable of a term. The degree of a term is the power to which the variable of the term is raised. Therefore, the numerical coefficient of $\frac{m}{4}$, which can be rewritten as $\frac{1}{4}\times m$, is $\frac{1}{4}$. The degree of $\frac{m}{4}$ is 1, because the variable $m$ is raised to a power of 1.
