Was Vulgate translated from Greek Septuagints in 4th century ?

Why Catholic Church does not use Septuagints as its original text of Scriptures?

From my understanding, its from Tanakh written in Hebrew, but I could be wrong.

No, but St. Jerome was in translating from a Hebrew text (NOT, the Masoretic Text that the Jews of today use, btw).

Btw, the Vatican does not use the Vulgate for the Psalms, but a revised form of the Vetus (the Old Latin translation from the LXX).

Are the Psalms of the current Catholic: New American Bible from the Vetus?

There's some doubt over how much Hebrew St. Jerome actually knew, a Biblical scholar friend told me. The Stuttgart and Clementine Vulgate, apparently, both have pre-Jeromian Latin translations, thought the Stuttgart has more. But to Roman Catholic Church today uses the New Vulgate, not the Clementine, which was the official text for over 1,000 years.

As for Catholic Bibles in English, I think the only ones actually translated from the Vulgate are the Douay-Rheims and the Knox Bibles.

You'd have to research that. I'd doubt it.

No. The Vetus Latina psalter is only used in some traditional (European?) monasteries.
