What method did you use to flash Magisk? You patched the boot.img with the Magisk app?
To get out of your bootloader loop, flashing the stock boot.img should get out of it, then you could try again. Make sure your SDK Platform Tools is up to date.
Also, if you are on the Android 12 Developers Preview, fastboot boot the patched boot.img instead of flashing it.

Could downloading full factory image and extract the boot.img and flash it in fastboot fix this ?.
Yes, that's exactly what I meant.
Then after you are fixed up, install the new Magisk app. Transfer the boot.img to your phone's download folder. Open up the Magisk app and choose to install. That will give you an option to patch the image. Select that. Navigate to your phone's download folder and select the boot.img . When that's done, transfer the patched image to your PC (in your ADB/fastboot folder makes for the easiest way). After that fastboot flash boot **drag and drop the patched boot.img here**

If you are running the 12 developers preview through, flashing it isn't working yet. You'll have to fastboot boot it for temporary root, and have to do that again every time you reboot. This should be fixed soon though. It might already be. I'm not sure if Magisk v22.0.0 had fixed that yet. I'll know in the next couple of hours when I have time to play with my phone.

Yeah, the game changed after Android 10 got released. I won't get into specifics of why, but devices released with Android 10 and later don't have twrp anymore mostly
