Split reins are the traditional type used for normal or show riding although certain disciplines use a single rein. Barrel racing, roping, pole bending, etc would use the single rein.
I don't attach my splits but many come with a keeper that you can slide on to join them.
Don't worry about what is traditional unless you are showing. Ride with what makes you comfortable - anything that works.
