is it possible to split a story that spans multiple text frames into separate stories?
For example, if I have a story which spans 10 text frames, is it possible to split, say, in 4+6 frames?
Of course, the choice is dictated by content and not by any other abstract reason.
This article will help: https://creativepro.com/how-to-split-long-story-into-smaller-pieces-unthreading-middle-story/. Be sure to read to the end—I think the option you want is listed last.
It takes a little lovin', but yes.
You can split a story across 10 threaded text frames 4+6, as long as you're willing to deal with adjusting it from 4+1+1+5 (with overset) first.

Hope this helps,
In addition to the informative answers given already, you can also look at a script called BreakTextThread. It's under the community folder in the scripts panel.
as Manan already mentioned, have a look at a script by Timothy Ariel Walden that is supplied with InDesign 2020 and 2021 in the Community folder of the Scripts panel: BreakTextThread.jsx
More important details about the script here:
Even if you do not use InDesign 2020 or 2021 you can download the script from Ariel's website.
It's also working in versions before InDesign 2020.
