customization – Include Sticky Posts with Custom Query


I’m working with Custom Query in WordPress, Basically, I’m showing 4 most recent posts of a category having ID 4
and my query is as follows:-

$args = array(
  'post_type' => 'post' ,
  'orderby' => 'date' ,
  'order' => 'DESC' ,
  'posts_per_page' => 4,
  'cat'         => '3',
  'paged' => get_query_var('paged'),
  
); 
$q = new WP_Query($args);

This is working fine, but here I have an additional requirement. I want to add sticky posts as well i.e Posts will be stick to the top no matters these posts are recent or old, and total posts_per_page should be always 4 including sticky and recent posts.

e.g If there is no sticky post then I’ll show 4 most recent posts and no sticky post. But if there is 1 sticky post then there will be 1 sticky post and 3 most recent posts, a total of 4 posts.

What modification should I made in my Query? Thank you.
