Let's say I have selected a middle portion of a clip and cut it, and now I have three adjacent clips.

How do I delete the middle clip, but have everything after it remain where it was, instead of being moved?

"Silence" is not the answer here. The requirement is to be left with a gap between the clips where the deleted clip previously was, and exactly the length of the deleted clip.

    You should say which software you are working with.

It depends of the software you are using.

In Audacity, it is called "split delete" (Edit menu > Remove Special > split delete).
