Is this normal? I have 1 TB for Windows and partitioned it in to 2 then when I checked in my MacOS it shows the drive for my
windows. Should I be aware on this? Thanks!

As expected. macOS/OS X provides readonly access to NTFS volumes.

Like it's not a good practice. Somewhat like that.
You have the expected result. It would be the same on a real Mac with Windows dual boot.
