You cannot avoid triangulation without using ngons (polygon with more then 4 points). Ngons are one of the big improvement of Cinema 9 release. If you are using a previous version you must study better the mesh topology (there are a lot of modelling Cinema based tutorial). Mesh surgery can also help a lot (I think Katana can be the right thing).
See ya

There's no reason triangles should be made there, since the split is only making quads. IMO this was a bug in the old split function. Anyway, you can just melt the extra edges.

There is a small excellent plug called Cutter that works in R9 as well from Arntd von K.
Comes in handy in situations like this.R9 is still pretty new to me so I don't know if it could be done natively.
Found at the bottom of this page:

What tool did you use to get this effect? In R9, the Knife tool in loop mode with 'Restrict to Selection' checked should do this.
