I'm not sure if this is the way it is supposed to work or not. If I enable the personal hotspot and I switch it to discoverable through control center, it stays that way for a couple of minutes before switching back if I do not connect to it. I have an android head unit in my car that I connect to the internet through the iphone (13.3). I have to pull up the the switch and toggle it to discoverable every time I get in the car. Is this the way it is supposed to work?

That is the behaviour I see with mine. I use it a lot when in the road, and after a few minutes of inactivity it seems to turn off automaticall.
