I'm a beginner at singing. What are some ways to protect my vocal cords from going bad?

How do I warm up and cool down? Do I need to drink water before singing every time?

No u don't need to drink water before u sing every time haha . Do vowels in a fifth up and down and go up each key when u did it only once and keep going till it's too high for you . Try not to go into your head voice it's not as affective and your throat closes up on you . Sing through the diaphragm and not the throat and make sure you have support in the diaphragm too . When you breathe don't shrug your shoulders or get tense . Make sure you do the opposite and get in the habit . When you breathe in expand your diaphragm out and when you breathe out then release it in . My experience ? 33 plays and all singing roles . im only an alto (a low singer) but this works in all cases . Hope this helps ! :)

for warming up you can sing scales and make sure you drink lots of water

Drink water regularly and try not to eat anything that makes your throat feel scratchy or anything... And in order to warm up, just do some simple warm-ups... Like singing, "La la la la la la la" but going up gradually into a higher pitch :)
Hope this helps!

Sing a lot. If it is practicing or just singing to the radio. The more you do the better you will become.

I go to singing classes so I've learned a couple of tricks. My teacher sometimes has us make weird sounds with different pitches. Just sing your favorite songs and practice in your natural voice. Because if you don't, you could damage them. I'm sorry if this wasn't helpful because I'm kind of a beginner too. :)
