Please define what you mean by monitor.  The links above show you how to monitor a running rman job but you could also take your question to mean how to show/report back that the backup is complete or if it had errors.

Please clarify.

I need a script to check whether my backup is running properly. Is there any method by which IO can estimate the amount of space the backup will occupy and how much time will it take to backup

From a quick Google search:
http://forums.oracle.com/forums/thread.jspa?threadID=601673

Which references:

From Metalink Note:105208.1:
There is no 'magic' formula to calculate the storage space of an RMAN backup
and there is no query that will give you a space estimate.
So, the best answer is: "Try it and see how much is used."

V$RMAN_STATUS  - This view displays progress and status information for in-progress and complete RMAN jobs. The information for the in-progress jobs is memory only, while the complete job information comes from the controlfile.
