(1) We have each been given two rewards for their volunteer services.

(2) We will each be writing two essays next week.

Is it OK to split compound verbs with "each"? Thanks.

It is OK to split the verb group with "each'. It is useful to know that in such cases "each" is an adverb.

Your sentences are OK except for the word I have underlined. It should be 'our'.
