Why is "is eating/eats" 먹습니다 but "is drinking/drinks" is 마십니다 and not 마습니다? Is this right?

because to eat is : 먹다 while to drink is : 마시다

먹다 is to eat and 마시다 is to drink

Because 마시다 ends with a vowel "ㅣ" so you have to add ㅂ니다, and 먹다 ends with the consonant "ㄱ" so you add 습니다

ㅂ니다: When the verb ends in a vowel

습니다: When the verb ends in a consonant
