Below are the recurring issues after android 11 update.
1. Face id won't work and prompts to clean the top bar. Most of the time, it won't work even after restarting.
2. If a call is answered, screen goes full blank/black. We will not be able to unlock, reduce/increase volume, take screenshots, open other app, power button won't work. We cannot disconnected the call also. Very frustrating.
3. Unable to add emergency contacts (before update also)

I have very similar issues following the update to Android 11. It started with face recognition giving an error message (clean camera and the black bar). That was sometimes fixed with power cycling however not in every case. Two days later, the screen went totally black, non-responsive to any input and stayed that way until intervention from the alarm, phone call or sometimes text. In other words, the phone is totally useless when in the disable mode. Interesting to note that when the screen is blacked out, it does take input from the power and volume buttons but to no effect. This is a freaking disaster and I can only hope there is a patch soon.

Enabling quick gestures seems to fix the problem for now with the screen going black calling and not reverting back.

Same problem. I contacted the google help and requested my phone to go to a repair shop or sending it to them. I'm not even sure what to do anymore.

I don't have access to my menu anymore. I won't swipe up. I cannot get that to work and trying to find apps that aren't on my home screen is a chore. I also now have the blank screen after calls now. When it comes back it wants me to put in my passcode but won't allow me to put in the code???? This is my second 4XL as I've already had to send my phone in to Google for the previous issue where the batter wouldn't charge. I had hardware vanish on my 3XL(finger scanner) and now issues again. I'm regretting my switch to Google but more so giving it another shot with upgrading to the 4XL. I hope they get this right soon.

I'll add that most of the time squeezing the bottom of the phone does not open Android assistant. It vibrates and the dots show up on the bottom but after this it does nothing.

I too have the same issues as OP.
