    Is the phrasal verb breakaway separable?. I mean can all the phrasal verbs be separated by a noun or pronoun?

    There is no phrasal verb "breakaway". A phrasal verb must consist of at least two words.
    If you are referring to "break away", then yes it is separable in some cases.

    If you do mean this, then no, not all phrasal verbs can separated - only those which are "separable". "Break away" is a separable phrasal verb.
