Main Question or Discussion Point

If we split H2S we get
H2S = 2H+ + S2-
Where does the negative charge come from in H2S? Do we get 2- charge from the 2H atoms (now two protons after losing the electrons), I mean 2H+ or 2 protons get separated leaving behind the two electrons on S?

The way you write it, yes. The process of dissociation of H2S (which google) takes two steps.
