like how do u play the 1 and 4 and 4 together without hitting the string in between?

You do hit the string in between. You simply mute it with your first finger on the 1 fret.

Cort G-Series 254
Takamine EG345C 12-String
Fender Squier P-Bass

Peavey Classic 50
Laney HCM65B

either mute the string with one of your fingers or with your picking hand pluck each string,,,,and I assume that you just made that up since I doubt if you are just starting out you aren't playing any chords with a b9,,,,or a tritone for that matter either

^ Tru dat. Would be an intricate stretch for a beginner.
