My oregano has been doing well until I have harvested it recently. The leaves started to have tiny black spots though the plant is growing well. Is it some sort of fungus? What would help to control it? Perhaps stop watering for a few days?

Yes, probably a fungus. My advice would to prune off any affected foliage, let it dry out, make sure the plant has plenty of air circulation and well-draining soil. If the spots continue to take over the plant, then destroy it (trash or burn, do not put in your compost pile).
