Hi Steve,
just to add to what Bill has already said.
Focus assist is exactly what you're looking for. When it's on, banner notifications don't appear, but notifications still appear in the Action centre. This assumes that the writers of a program sending notifications are playing by the rules, but hopefully most will be doing so.
