can the rear mount be taken out and the other 3 mounts hold the weight

Permanently or temporarily? Permanently, no -- the front and rear mounts actually have to deal with the engine trying to rock as it operates.

no just temp, just long enough to take out the rear mount (no driving)

Ehhh... I'd still prefer to have the engine braced by something like a jack along with the other three mounts while working it.

Yes, it will work fine like that as long as you have both of the side mounts bolted. Just don't drive it.

The screw jack which comes with your Celica is actually pretty useful for this, I found -- lets you make fine adjustments in the position of the engine, which takes the load off of the mount to simply disassembly and makes aligning the various parts much easier.
