Andy’s doing a good job, but his time is limited.这个句子中的is在口语里口语省略不读吗? in this sentence, in spoken language i wonder if IS should be left out ?

I'm not really sure what your question is. We don't leave out words when we speak. Could you clarify?

我所知的不是省略“is”不读,而是弱读,可以直接读成/z/

In this sentence, a weak form of IS is used. The length of the sound of IS is reduced. So it's hard for a learn to hear the sound.

Definitely no. When you say "his time limited" in (sloppy) spoken English with a questioning tone, you are actually asking "(is) the time limited?" Like "(are) you good?", "(do) you like it?", etc.
