Using spool on Oracle sqlplus correctly sends the results of my queries to a file.

But I also see output on the screen.

Is it possible to see only the query without output on screen, and result on file? (This feature is the default on PostgreSQL psql client program).

You can use SQL> SET TERMOUT OFF command to get the result.
