If you break a magnet in two, you end up with two smaller magnets.
The strength of a magnet is related to its size.  So, the two smaller magnets will be weaker than the one original magnet.  However, the relationship may not be linear. So a needle shaped magnet may be weaker than a coin shaped magnet of equal mass.
Thus, the sum of your two broken magnets may in fact be stronger than the original

If you broke the bar magnet into two pieces then it will have two poles. Because there exist no singly poles like N-N and S-S and will not exist in further days.

If u break a magnet in two parts a new magnet will be formed with N S poles.
Concept:
As magnetic monopoles do not exist a magnet can never have an isolated pole.

Hope it helps.
