If it's on 1 ticket, the minimum connection time is 1h 15min.
I know the actual rules, but more asking about the ease and if I actually have to switch terminals because I cant seem to find concrete information on the web.

Look at a map of terminal 4 and 4S in MAD i have same issue in reverse. It seems like they are near each other and shouldnt talk too long to transfer between one and the other. I have 2 hours between flights but have to pick up my luggage according to AA and recheck to IB. They said that should be enough time to do that.

Im pretty sure theres a tram between terminals. And im also pretty sure they should be transfering your luggage if on one ticket

That is correct. You must be on one PNR with OW in order to be guaranteed interlining/protection in the case of delays.

I did in once from J to F not being a connecting flight, and I just made it while losing myself in the airport, This summer I had it as a connecting flight (they connected it in VIE when I checked in), and I had a agent waiting for me to take me to the gate, I still had time to go to the lounge for 25 min!
