Sony A7iii focus issues with monitor

I need some help. I need to buy a camera to record 4K video for an upcoming shoot. The Sony A7iii was recommended...but for this shoot, the camera would have to be mounted in a way where I would need to connect it to a monitor.

I've read that the Sony A7iii has an issue where the face detection auto focus will no longer work (while recording 4K video internally) when you connect to a monitor. Can you tell me more about this? Would that seriously impair auto focus in general (my main shot would be focusing on hands, not faces, but I don't want to do it solely with manual focus)?

Also, does anyone know if the Sony A7Riii has the same issue? I'm very new to these cameras, and don't really have access to any to test, so your help here would be greatly appreciated.
