One right way of saying this is: How much time is left before class is over?

Fault = falta (sustantivo) error

Faltar puede ser, según el contexto:
  • To lack X (bastante formal). Falto recursos para conquistar la ciudad. I lack the resources to conquer the city.
  • To be X short to be short X. Falto un euro, ¿te pago mañana? I'm a euro short; can I pay you tomorrow?
  • To be missing X. Perdona, camarero, faltamos un tenedor. Excuse me, waiter, we're missing a fork.
  • En expresiones de tiempo, There is/are X to go. Faltan diez minutos para que el tren salga. There are ten minutes to go until the train leaves.
  • Tal vez otras frases también, pero esas son las que se me ocurren sin buscarlo en un diccionario.

Yes, but not with time. E.g. there is a distinct lack of good ideas
