  • what you mean with " split each column into two`? What is in column? Do you like to have drawn red lines in the sketch? Your question is not clear.

    your comment is not helpful. What should indicate that column is split?

  • If you want the lines around given text, you can use \columnseprule to draw a line between columns, and \noindent\rule[2pt]{\dimexpr \columnwidth+0.5\columnsep}{0.4pt}\hspace{-0.5\columnsep} to connect (on the left). If you want the text to flow between given sized rectangles, you can use the flowfram package. Commented May 3, 2022 at 14:27

This reproduce your image. But I'm not sure if this is useful (context of this is not clear to me)

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol}

\begin{document}

{
\setlength{\columnseprule}{2pt}
\begin{multicols}{2}
1
\vspace{4\baselineskip}

\noindent\rule{\dimexpr\linewidth+0.5\columnsep}{2pt}

3

\vspace{5\baselineskip}
\null
\columnbreak
2

\vspace{6\baselineskip}

\hspace{-2\columnsep}\rule{\dimexpr\linewidth+0.5\columnsep}{2pt}

4

\end{multicols}
}
\end{document}

enter image description here

However, I guess that you looking for the following:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multicol,etoolbox}
\usepackage{lipsum} % just for the example

\newcommand\Lrule{\par\noindent\rule{\dimexpr\linewidth+0.5\columnsep}{2pt}\par}
\newcommand\Rrule{\par\noindent\hspace{-0.5\columnsep}%
                               \rule{\dimexpr\linewidth+0.5\columnsep}{2pt}\par}

\begin{document}

{
\setlength{\columnseprule}{2pt}
\begin{multicols}{2}
\lipsum[1]
\Lrule
\lipsum[11]
\columnbreak

\lipsum[2]
\Rrule
\lipsum[22]
\end{multicols}
}
\end{document}
