Why does it sound like he is saying "Františeká"?


It's a known glitch of the male voice. The female voice is pronouncing it correctly.


Is there any specific rules on ommiting the pronoun 'Ty' or 'Já' which then allow the sentence started with 'jsem', 'jsi'?

"Seš František." is non-standard; Common Czech.

So far, I understand that interrogative and assertive can be differed by the question mark in written, and by intonation when we speak. Sometimes, in spoken utterances the intonation goes flat, I mean not like typical questionning tone which goes up. But then our speaking partner would confirm if it is or it is not, 'ano' or 'ne'.
