Also need to know whether NULL and LOW values are same and difference if any. what is a high value?

X'04' corresponds to NULL or low values.

mild suggestion...
review Your understanding of the "null value" concept...
there is no such a a thing as a null value, every byte of eight bit is a value,
even 00
nullness is a convention to indicate that a value is not provided

to provide support for NULLNESS each data field must be composed of two parts...
NULL indicator ( tells if a value has been provided )
DATA value relevant only if NOT NULL
