I have a large Android tablet and would like to "split" the virtual keyboard when it's in landscape mode. Something similar like the iPad feature.

Is this possible and if so how?

Thumb Keyboard allows for this, as well as many other handy features which make it well worth the money

Swiftkey's tablet version supports this (paid, free trial). It has the letters split to each side and the numeric keys in the middle:

There also is FloatNSplit Tablet Keyboard (for the tablet rather AI FloatNSplit Tablet Keyboard) which offers this feature:

In addition to being able to split the keyboard, this one can also float with some transparency:
