Music with middle cut out (unwanted).
Timed both halves of the music so when the 1st half ends the beat continues properly to the 2nd half of the music.
I want to delete a video clip on the main timeline.
After deleting the video clip the music beat is out of sinc.
Can't link the music track to another clip in main storyline.
Explained better in image.
I always make a compound clip of the edited music track so that these things don't happen. The clip that the second piece of music is attached to is moving when you delete the marked video clip. It won't happen if the music is a compound clip and the clip is attached to the very first clip. Hope this helps.

[Jeremy Garchow]"A compound also works, but a secondary might be better as you can adjust without opening the compound, and you can achieve the same thing."
I'll second the secondary. Trim the two where they meet, select both, hit Command - G.
I'll typically create a secondary with the full music track first. Then find a suitable beat, trim, and sometimes add a short crossfade if I need to.
If I'm working with watermarked music, then I'll compound the full track, put that in a secondary, and cut the compound. If we like it, putting the licensed version in is as simple as replacing the track inside the compound.
