Split step so that you're in the air when your opponent contacts the ball no matter how far you've made it in to net. So on a serve and volley, you will split well before you reach the service line. Once you land off the split, you should know where the ball is going, and then you have to move through the volley. Do not stop at contact but rather time your feet so that you land with the back foot, hit the ball, and then land with the front foot. So on a forehand volley, you want to make contact as your left foot is still steppping forward, before it comes down. Does this make sense?
