C-c C-e v [SPACE]
C-x h M-w
C-x k

In other words: Begin exporting only the visible part with `C-c C-e 
v', then press space at the prompt for output formats. This leaves you 
in a second buffer with a copy of the visible part (and yes, you do 
get rid of the ellipses). Then select all with `C-c h' (alternately, 
select the region of your choice) and copy. Kill the copy buffer when 
you're done with it.

You may want to record a keyboard macro if you need this often.

You can do that, albeit only in a copy of your document in a separate 
buffer, with the approach above. But why would you want to? Perhaps if 
you state a use case, someone can point out a different approach.

I don't know.
