my device connects to adb,

Of course that happens when you run adb shell you are entering in your phone using the debbuging shell. You are in your phone. This happens to me also when i am using adb shell no devices will be shown. If you can run any command from adb shell then your device is there. Nothing to worry about. It is normal.
If you disconnect your device when in adb shell you will see it will automatically exit the shell!

Hit Thanks if i helped you!
