Is it possible to increase the space between text and border in urxvt, and if so, how? I can't find any resources on it online.

You are looking for the internalBorder value:

URxvt.internalBorder:  4

From man urxvt:

internalBorder: number
Internal border of number pixels. This resource is limited to 100; option -b.
