I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

There were so much sniping and backstabbing in the party that in the end it imploded and split in two.

Write There was so much sniping etc. "Imploded" ("rapidly and violently collapsed into iself") contradicts "split in two".

Would me sentence be correct like this:

There was so much sniping and backstabbing in the party that in the end it broke down in two.

If I delete "parties" would my sentence be correct like this?

There was so much sniping and backstabbing in the party that, in the end, it split into two.

The usual expression is it split in two.​ With that amendment your sentence is fine.
