Did you read the policy to check what are the precise rules?  It says

“there are some exceptions for unusual shared libraries or for shared
libraries that are also loaded as dynamic modules by other programs.”

libwnckmm doesn't seen an "unusual shared library" to me, and it's not
dynamic modules.  So yes, it should really ship two packages.

No. dh can't divine which files will have to go where.

Again, see how it is done in libwnck for instance.
