It is totally acceptable that the salah, specifically the fardh rakats of Zuhr, Asr, and Isha are reduced from four rakats to two rakats. And also you can combine the prayers. Specificially, Zuhr and Asr can be combined and Maghrib and Isha can be combined. There are two options when combining the prayers, you can either advance Asr and pray at the time of Zuhr or pray Zuhr delayed at the time of Asr. You can combine and reduce those prayers at the same time, i.e to pray 2 rakats of zuhr and 2 rakats of asr at Zuhr time or delayed at Asr time and to pray Maghrib 3 rakats and Isha 2 rakats at either Maghrib time or delayed at Isha time.
