When I'm doing "polygon to line" analysis on ArcGIS the result is individual line features but in QGIS is not.

How can I execute "polygon to line" in QGIS where each polygon becomes individual line feature?

You need to use Explode lines tool to explode the converted line feature into individual lines:

Search for Explode lines in the processing toolbox and you will find it. I am using QGIS 3.4.
