Question about Simplified Chinese (China)

How do people from taiwan differentiate between letters like c and ch, z and zh, s and sh, do they pronounce it differently or exactly the same? And also between words like 生 and 身.(I'm referring to the ending n and ng)

(I mean I CAN understand it smh from the context but especially the last example sounds exactly the same to me when taiwanese say it)

台湾人怎么区分z和zh,c和ch,s和sh这些声母?他们说话的时候有没有任何区别? 而且还有一些词像"生" 和 "身" 对我来说听起来一模一样。
