Does USCIS call you to cancel interviews?

Is it normal procedure for someone from a USCIS field office to call you and leave a voicemail in Spanish stating that your interview has been cancelled?

Depends on the jurisdiction. I do not see why not. You want to make sure go on an infopass appointment and check of the interview is still in the cards.

Not typically, no. USCIS usually sends a cancellation notice by US Mail if an interview is going to be cancelled.

Not normal but would be courteous if it is a last minute cancellation.

I have received direct phone calls from USCIS, but never to cancel an interview. This does not mean this is not possible. I suggest you first call USCIS' Customer Service Number at 1-800-375-5283, provide your I-130 receipt number, and ask if they show your interview
as cancelled. You can also try making a InfoPass (informational) appointment at your local USCIS Field Office (the office where your interview is scheduled) to double check. The link is here: http://infopass.uscis.gov/
