To add a card (
Drawing a card is considered to be a specific method of adding a card from the Deck to the hand. Effects that deal with adding all include drawing; for example, if "Blackwing - Breeze the Zephyr" is drawn by a card effect, then you can use its effect to Special Summon it. However, the reverse is not true; for example, "Protector of the Sanctuary" will not prevent adding with an effect like "Archfiend's Oath".
You do not lose the Duel if you have no cards in your Deck when required to add a card from it, only when specifically drawing.
In the anime
In the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime, when a card(s) is added from the Deck to the hand, the added card(s) is/are ejected from the Deck without having to shuffle it.
