so is it normal now?
It works as you are used to unless
you play 1.13a (which is not supported on Battle.net: public testing of Patch 1.13a on the Classic Beta server, AKA the Public Test Realm (PTR), ended long ago).
Only the most recent patch (currently 1.13d) is available for play on Battle.net.

According to our wiki, the synergy bonuses do not apply to minimum damage, so the minimum values should be adjusted to 7 or 8 (depending on facets inserted into sockets).
I did not check the maximum, but it is fairly straightforward to calculate from your post and the data in our wiki:
(MinLD=1, MaxLD: jump to Level 1-60 stats)
Synergy: +% MaxLD = 8 · (Charged Bolt.blvl + Nova.blvl + Chain Lightning.blvl)
(add +% LSD from equipment)
Synergy and Mastery bonuses multiply. Integer division (truncate).
