First of all - why do the lines split?

In this case, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proton_NMR" [Broken] regarding spin-spin coupling.

There's coupling involved, look at the hydrogens connected on the "neighboring carbon". The wikipedia has an explanation for how that works. There's also a n+1 rule that works similarly for this situation.
