I'm guessing "n-am" is a shortening of "nu am". Do any other words get shortened like this?

Yes, quite frequently, actually. For instance:

nu-s = nu sunt

să-mi/să-ți/să-și = să îmi/să îți/să își

There's more, but none are crossing my mind right now.

Another example: nu-mi/nu-ți/nu-i - nu îmi, nu îți, nu îi. And many more.
