Like an upper lower!? Sure why not!?
I assume you are doing shoulders on another day?
What does the entire week look like or the entire routine?

My current split:
Chest / Lats
Quads / Calves
Shoulders / Traps
Hams / Calves
Size, strength, propotion, and recovery have all been consistent.

if you do compound movements you are doing more than 2 muscles. bench - shoulders, lats, triceps, pecs. squats - abs, back, quads, hammies, calfs. deadlift - nearly everything.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.

I do chest/bis 3-4 movements each...back/tris 3-4 movements each....shoulders and legs alone...abs/calves eod

It is better to state what you are doing for the split rather than just state the split. For instance, are you doing sumo deads on back day? Because you are also incorporating legs into that, so it gives a better idea of what you are doing. That is just an example, but too often people don't list what they are actually doing and don't realize that they are in fact working more compound (or the opposite and not working enough muscle groups with too much isolation).

I train my upper back muscles 3-4 times a week.
Over the course of the week my horizontal pull volume and vertical pull volume is about 1.5 times that my horizontal and vertical push volume, respectively.
I do not consider pairing chest with biceps a push/pull, as one is a torso muscle acting on the shoulder and the other an extremity muscle acting on the elbow.

I love push-pull routines. I get some of my best gains from doing that

It it doesn't have to be in the same session, but balanced over the course of the training cycle.
