Short description of error
View Layer doesn't control render visibility

Exact steps for others to reproduce the error

  1. Create second View Layer
  2. Disable render visibility of collection or object
  3. Go back to first view layer ==> the collection/object, wich just got disabled in the second view layer, is as well disabled in the first view layer.

That's by design and the same as in 2.79.

If you want to control visibility per view layer, right click View Layer > Exclude or press E.

Some changes to the design are being considered here: T61361

Oh sorry, then I mixed it up with render layers. Are those implemented yet?

View layers replace render layers, they have all the same features but with a different UI than 2.79.

But if I want to render collection a in layer a, and collection b in layer b, there is no way to do that, unless I put them in different scenes?

See my answer above about Exclude.
