See also: TechDraw API and FreeCAD Scripting Basics.

The CopyView tool can be used in macros and from the Python console by using the following functions:

import TechDrawTools
#MoveView with a True parameter in the last position performs a copy
TechDrawTools.MoveView(viewName, fromPageName, toPageName, True)

There is only one View object after the copy operation. Any changes made to the View will be reflected in both Pages. If the View is deleted from one Page it will also be deleted from the other.
