Spotify not downloading in the background

I noticed that downloading stops when spotify runs in the background. Is this normal?

Unfortunately for iOS this is normal. The device must be unlocked and spotify must be on screen, furthermore, two minutes of inactivity will pause the downloads.

So just so I'm clear, the app cannot be in the background with the phone
unlocked or no?

It can. Anything that is not opened right now on the screen is in a background and paused. That's how iOS works days on a single charge
