My channel and videos have google adsense. Would it violate the Google Adsense terms of service?

Violoating the Adsense TOS would be asking people to click the ads in your videos. Asking people to like/subscribe is pretty much the same as asking people to bookmark your site and come back.

If you ask people to click on your ads, the advertisers lose money without getting the chance to get an income so this is against the TOS. Asking people to come back will generate natural ad views, which is exactly what they want.

Yes, it's perfectly okay to ask your viewers to like & subscribe (assuming your content is original). Monetisation of your content doesn't make any difference.
