Because if the WiFi remained on and connected while on battery power, your battery life would be incredibly short.

And i dun have cellular data for now

Only wifi and it’s always on while im using the phone.

It's a smart-phone. A smart-phone without a data plan is little better than an iPod. No supported carrier will knowingly allow the use of an iPhone without a cellular data plan.

Once i leave the phone and the screen goes off , wifi also turns off automatically.

I know that because when i hold the phone again to use it , the wifi reconnects also automatically.

While the screen is off, no wifi so i can not receive WhatsApp notifications for example of someone sent me a message while um not holding the phone in my hands.

That's correct. That's the way it's supposed to work.
