I like my 3 day split. Push pull legs just because its a 3 day split does not mean you can't work out 5 times a week take a day off when you feel like your body needs it look them up on google.
Personally I work out on Monday do my push then the next day do pull then legs the next maybe a day off them I'm hitting push and either pull or legs the following days. It's a good way to bring up lagging parts

That's pretty much what I do my first workout ex. Monday and Tuesday I work on heavy lifts and the second go around that week I work on hypertrophy I have noticed a great improvement in my training doing this

I have used 3 and 4 day splits (in various ways) for absolute years now and nothing has really produced better. That all said, the focus is always on using the 5-7 big compound exercises and always trying to add weight/reps to the bar, keeping form and reps/sets in a good area.

you can use a 1 day or a 14 day split. as long as the volume and intensity is in line with your goals and work capacity then it just doesnt matter. what is more important that you are actually doing the workout.
you can call me "ozzie" for short.
