Yes, this is fairly common with new Scrum teams. There are a million reasons why this happens, but it's not a very good practice in general. I call it "swim-lane" Scrum or "silo" Scrum.

We should probably complete one epic at a time.I think you meant "theme" here, as your team should not be working on epics. Yes, working on related stories generally encourages/forces more collaboration, but not always. It also usually helps the team be more focused and productive. Silo-ing is mostly an org culture problem, and you essentially need to do everything in your influence to instead encourage teamwork. Encouraging collaboration and teamwork is a very broad topic, so there are a million ways to attempt to solve that.
Does the team have a code review practice?-------

Subject: [scrumdevelopment] limited interaction between developers
In some teams I notice that each developer works on his own story and there is limited interaction between developers.
I think the reason is that we are attempting multiple, unrelated stories/epics. We should probably complete one epic at a time.
Is this a common problem with new teams?
