Is it normal for an antivirus to NEVER have detected a virus/potential threat?

I’m using paid bitdefender antivirus for mac.

recently, I’ve been gettting some issues, sudden CPU spikes for no reason, somettimes certain applications not working, ettc.

and this led me to realize something, bitdefender has never detected any threats on my computer, for the 6 montths I’ve had it, not one system scan has ever yielded “dangerous items”. Not ONE.

You’d think even normal software would have something that would trip up antivirus, but none.

Is it possible for an antivirus to be “compromised?” or a virus disabling the antivirus’s ability to scan?
