Without getting your bodyfat tested via DEXA scans, yes, this is the best way to determine that you aren't losing muscle. You may still be, but its likely minimal.

Eh, it depends how you alter your training. I've had cuts where I intentionally lost muscle, but still gained strength. It's all in how you change your training.M.Ed. Ex Phys

I also cut kcals and drastically increased my other training (sparring, grappling, running, etc.). Losing weight (fat and/or muscle) is determined by overall energy balance and not by one specific factor.
