I am trying to activate Sharepoint Server publishing feature in a sharepoint online Subsite but getting error :

Feature 94c94ca6-b32f-4da9-a9e3-1f3d343d7ecb is Web-scoped, and cannot be added to the Site.

I tried :

$site =$context.Site

What property I should use instead of $site ?

$context.Site gives you the site collection context.

Feature with GUID 94c94ca6-b32f-4da9-a9e3-1f3d343d7ecb is SharePoint Server publishing feature which as your error mentions is a web-scoped feature and not site collection scoped feature. So, you need to activate it in the SP Web context and not SP Site context.

So, modify it as in below snippet to activate it in your subsite:
