In the past I had generated a wallet and used that address to mine in a pool (minexmr). I had mined for a couple of months and I remember that I gather a "substantial" amount. However, I never received a payment since I didn't reach the threshold.

I stopped mining, and today (after 1~2 year) I decided to restore my wallet from the seed and see what's going on. Restoring from the seed gave me a wallet address, that I guess it's the same as the old one?

Subsequently, I went back to the pool and entered my address to check what I had mined but there is nothing "credited" to my wallet. Is this normal? Have I lost what I had mined in the past as I never reached the threshold and never got paid?

Did I do anything wrong with restoring my wallet?

It clearly says this in the Terms and conditions page. "Accounts which are inactive for longer than 365 days may be deleted. Any remaining balance will be treated as a donation to the Pool." https://minexmr.com/terms

So yes you can loose your mined coins by being inactive for long.
