I know what you're talking about. I had this feature in my Pixel 1, 3 and 5 as well as my iPhone 8 and 10. Maybe you've found a solution to this already, but I came across this post and frankly, I was already peeved even before I read that @Fosu929 non-answer. I might not have the perfect solution, but it's a sight better than that bs. You can use the "Stay Awake" option in the hidden "Developer Options" to keep your screen on while charging. At least that way you can see your notifications without having to interact with your phone all the time. One of the reasons that this is suboptimal is that the screen is truly always on (not in a bs Samsung definition of "always on". Also, this only works when charging via USB cable (when charging wirelessly it stops once the battery is full, another annoying "feature"). This means that if you have one of those jobs where you're not constantly at your desk, you're constantly plugging/unplugging the cable and that will eventually ruin the charging port. I'll leave it to you to search out how to find and enable the secret "developer options" because along the way you will learn more about what they are and the potential security issues you are opening yourself up to by following this advice. Frankly, I'm annoyed that there isn't a better way to do this especially considering it has been done on other phones; Android and Apple alike. Anyway, hope that helps. Cheers!
