Base never opens any files other than the .odb files it creates.
You always connect Base to some tabular data source.

Specify the directory (dBase has always been a database in a
directory) [x] Register data source Save the .odb file

The .odb file is just a configuration file. It does not contain
any database data. You may add simple SQL queries to that

I described my operation a bit obscure. I have done the mentioned
procedure (I mean "Connect to existing database"->"dbase"-> other
procedures mentioned above) and after that I saw a database without
any tables. My question: is there anyone who have seen that
connection to dbase databases work in LO Base 3.4?

Yes. I have an old version of ACT contact database .dbf files on my
system (linux) and using 3.4.3 I set the directory as instructed by
Andreas, the databases appear in Base, I click on one and all the data
is there. Note that you need to click on the database, then in the view
window click on 'None' and change to 'Document' in order to see the data
in the view window. You can of course also right-click on the database
and select to 'Open', 'Edit', 'Copy', etc.
