From Gnome’s nmcli website:

$ nmcli con show --active
NAME                UUID                                  TYPE             DEVICE

Wired connection 1  f1d049d0-ad20-3201-ac70-5cb8cc06a6e5  802-3-ethernet   enp59s0 

To test if a specific connection is active use:

nmcli con show --active <connection_name>
