In the our universe, said collectors have a drag that limit speeds to sublight. I suspect that would happen under warp drive.
Yes there is friction in space, but the amount is so miniscule that you wouldn't really notice it.
I think what limit's a vessel is the "Theory of Special Relativity
" not drag from the Bussard collectors.
According to Star Trek rules / logic, you cannot break the Speed of Light barrier without warp drive.
No matter how good your impulse engine is, you cannot go FTL without activating warp engines.
