What if the weekly hours per week has reach its limit and I stiil work, will it be compensated on next week hourly limit? For example, if my weekly limit is 10hours/week and I reach my weekly limit and I still work until I have worked 11hours this week. Can the 1 hour excess will be deducted on the next week hourly limit?

It will not be added to next week. You just worked an hour for no pay. The client put an weekly time limit on your job because that is all they wanted to pay for. The time tracker gives you a big giant notice across the top of your screen that your limit is reached and you will not be paid for anything over that.

Not exactly true - the banner does not say that you won't be paid for overtime.  Upwork should have cared better about the user expectations.  Adding such explanation to the banned would eliminate emerging this kind of post.

oDesk does not bill clients for overtime and it doesn't get carried over the next work week. It's prudent that you have a prior arrangement with your client before going overtime. My 10-hour-weekly-limit client paid me for overtime last week.

You're working "for" a client; with whom you establish some "rules".

 

You don't get run off willy-nilly running up hours.

That's fine - we're discussing the confusion for freelancers when the Upwork tracker allows tracking overtime without explaining the consequences.
