What is the legal age to date a minor? We're 4 years apart in age.

Probably would depend on what state you are in, but in all honesty, if you are 4 years apart then any sort of sexual relationship that you have with someone who is under the age of 18 is going to be illegal.

We live in Texas and he's 19 and I'm about to turn 16

Age of consent in Texas is 17. If he was within 3 years or less of you, there might be an exception, however 4 years would be considered statutory rape, and he'd be risking felony charges and jail time.

But we don't plan on having sex until I'm 18

As long as you don't have any sort of sexual relationship, then you might be fine. However keep in mind, if your parents want to press the issue, even something like kissing can get him into serious trouble. If the two of you are really meant to be, then waiting a couple of years shouldn't be an issue. Not waiting could literally ruin the rest of his life.

well generally you can date anyone at any age. it's just, you can't have sex if one of you is under 18 and the other is over 18. even though people do that all the time
