An eved Ivri is still Chayav in all Mitzvos, as it says in Teshuvos Radvaz 4,1259
הרי עבד עברי חייב בכל מצות שבתורה
The Radvaz continues that there is a Dispute between the Rambam and Onklos whether min Hatorah a yisroel can marry a *shifcha canaanis
shifcha Canaanis which is prohibited from thee Torah "Lo Yihye Kadesh" (devarim 23,18)which is explained by Onkles one should not marry a slavewoman (Rashi Kidushin 69a)
He was allowed mideorasa to marry her and only prohibited miderabanan and the rabbis lifted their decree with an Eved Ivri as the Torah says the master can force him to marry a Shifcha (Maharashdam Yore dea 196 interpretation of Rambam Avadim perek 3)
According to the Rambam there is absolutely no difference Mideoraisa between a regular yisroel and an eved Ivri, whereas rashi and onklos hold an eved ivri exempt from one Mitzva of marrying a shifcha Canaanis which is prohibited to a Yisroel mideoraisa.
