Does the usual commutation relations, e.g. between position and momentum, remains valid in relativistic quantum mechanics?

Yes in one particle RQM like the Dirac equation.
But things get more complicated in QFT.

No, because there's no such thing as time operator in quantum mechanics.

As far as I'm aware, there's no such thing as a time operator in field theory. My understanding was that, for field theory, they demoted position to a parameter like time, and promoted the wave equation to the status of an operator.
