I want to advance SQL Server performance.
So I want to consult how to split MDF and LDF files?

You can add additional data files, typically they get the .ndf extension. Look up ALTER DATABASE in Books Online.

There's no point in splitting a log file for performance. SQL uses them sequentially, not in parallel.
Adding additional data data files will only help performance if they are on different physical drives and if your bottleneck was IO-related.
