I currently own a web application with a domain name that I purchased through the webhost - however, for the sake of being able to change my server easily-I want to purchase my domain name directly from ICANN. Do I have to wait for my subscription with my webhost to expire before I can purchase the domain name? So basically lose a day of uptime? Or is there a way around it - since I technically own the domain name at the moment.

No, you don't need to waiting for subscription end, you can transfer your domain name to different webhost provider.
