There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

Is it okay to separate my curls after braiding it to give it more fullness?
Separating your hair after you braid it for volume is basically up to you. If you want a thicker/fluffier fullness, then that is totally your choice, though it may be more prone to tangling or even matting at the end of the day, depending on how tight your curls are.

My only concern would be how you were separating it. If you are doing it roughly, or it involves pulling the ends apart (so they make snapping/ripping noises), or pulling your hair apart like a wishbone, then that's really bad. But a very gentle separating (by pulling open each curl rather than ripping apart, or running fingers through the curls) is totally fine.
