Will an iphone with a case attached fit into the universal dock, or does the iphone need to be removed from the case before it will fit into the universal dock?
My 4 sits in a universal dock without an insert whilst in fairly chunky case
Entirely depends upon the case.
I would recommend removing the case, regardless of whether it can fit in a dock or not. You may want to look into a dock extender.
