Salaam Alaykum

I wanted to find out more about 'Imsaak'. Reason being, I drank some water 3-4 minutes before Salaatul Subh adhaan, obviously around 10 or so minutes after imsaak.

Is my fast valid?

Imsak is Mustahhab (recommended) and not wajib (obligatory). The fast starts from fajr (adhan of fajr) and ends by Magrib (adhan of Magrib). Refraining before or after these timings is just for the sake of ahityat (precaution) which is Mustahhab.

Yes, your fast is valid.
