A very common git workflow is sort of the opposite: the master branch contains tested, vetted, working code, and another branch contains code being tested before merging it with the master. Branches are extremely cheap and fast to create and merge in git, and so it’s also very common for each dev to work on a distinct branch or, in fat, a collection of branches. It’s fairly usual to have one branch per feature being worked on, and for such branches to live only long enough for the feature in question to be developed and merged with the release.
