Possibly try windowed full-screen setting. I've seen it do something close

best trick for me is to watch the bottom icon bar. You'll see your guys legs standing and know when it's the next round.
Abort, report.

When i play other games, i do not hear music or sounds when i tab out. Not sure its possible in Hhour. This is one of the reasons i miss using discord before the Voip was fixed.

Lots of games actually do have this, it's called "Sound in background" and it's usually in the audio tab, GTA 5 and World of Warcraft are two games off the top of my head I know have this but there's A LOT more.

 

EDIT: All Battle.net 2.0 Blizzard games have this option (WoW, D3, Hearthstone, Overwatch, etc..)
