    If they are indexed URLs Redirect them or Remove them...

    also if it dynamic something like magento then you have to add nofollow in robots.txt

    if it is a wordpress site use 404 to 301 plugin. It basically redirects all 404 to homepage or other page on your site you set.

    You can 301 Redirect to redirect the 404 error pages to the most relevant page of the site. If there is no relevant page on your site related to the 404 links, simply delete/remove them.
