Default [Q] N4: did batt. recalibration, not loading when off. Loading when powered on - Why?

I got my Nexus 4 yesterday and I did battery recalibration.
Everything on, WiFi, BT, NFC, brightnes high, etc. and Stability Test.

After a while the phone switched off, because of 0% battery.
Then I plugged the phone into the charger. Phone was off. The screen showed a battery loading symbol with "0%" number.

After half an hour I went back to the phone (still off) and pressed the power button. Still 0%.
The charger wasnt warm too.

Then I switched the phone on and suddenly it was loading. Charger went warm too.

What happened here?
Is the phone not capable of loading when powered off?

Purity ROM 4.4.3 and AK 301 kernel
charger is original, cable from Nokia.
Rubik ROM with Rubik Apps and Rubik kernel r24

The phone should be capable of charging when powered off, what your describing sounds like a strange instance, but as long as its working now then I don't think anything bad happened.
