Simple queries on intersection of hypersurfaces

Our universe is sometimes conjectured to be a four-dimensional hyper-
surface. Imagining that it may be a four-dimensional surface of a
sphere, I am trying to get a rough picture of the locus of the
of such a universe with another four-dimensional universe of the same
kind, ie: which is also the surface of a hypersphere.

Would the zone of intersection be a 4-1 dimensional object by
(having three dimensions), and yet would it also be a surface?

And I wonder what such an intersection might look like to observers
in our universe.
