You can not ugrade directly from 4.4.5 to 7.x. 

You will have to go with intermediate upgrades. You would come to know which version to which version by going through all major release notes. 


can I simply save important data and schemes and so on, and install Jira 7.x from scratch, importing my data afterwords?

No, that won't work

I'd recommend upgrading to 5.2, then 6.4 then 7.x, and reading the upgrade notes for each one in turn.
