I want to connect an external hard drive to my smart TV and to my network in the same time, so I can browse my midia easily and add, remove files from the HD through the network

A USB hub would not provide network access to the drive. Using a PLEX server on a dedicated device and then streaming that media to the TV would be the best answer. A Raspberry PI4 would be an inexpensive way to create what you want. The more robust way would be a commercial NAS unit or a PC running FreeNAS.
