If a browser tab is open and not in view whether the time will be used  calculating Average Time on Site ? If yes will it capture infinitely or whether it has a limit when it will expire ?

Adobe Analytics needs at least two image requests in a visit to calculate time spent. Time spent will continue to count event when a tab is in the background, *only if* the user comes back to the tab with 30 minutes and causes another image request. 

Another way to think about this is, the last page/hit of a visit will not have time spend information.
