What will happen if I take sertraline late by a few hours? Is it best to take as soon as I remember or miss the dose completely till next day?

In brief: Take it late.

It is best to take it around the same time each day, but if you miss a dose, take it when you remember. If you don't, you are likely to develop discontinuation symptoms by the time the next morning comes around.
