Is it possible to stay safe from viruses and malware if i use an Ad-Blocker. What i have heard is that these ads do carry some sort of malware in them that infect your system.

Ad-blocker / virus protection is like an insect repellent, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insect_repellent. It helps, but its not going to do anything when you rub the nest of wasps all over your body.

Don't visit scummy sites, and click/run sources you don't have trust in. If in doubt, maybe ask around, see if someone else has experience with a particular case.

Some are more reputable than others. I trust uBlock Origin no matter what, works great against all types of ads and afaik isn't some kind of malware. Though maybe I should do some more research into it.
