Yeah - the group split makes no sense. Abraham wanted to leave because he perceived a threat to Eugene. That threat was eliminated. Now there's no reason to leave immediately. I suspect it's for story-telling. It's a lot easier to plot an episode with 6 mains than it is 12.
Hard to know if cooking will sterilize tainted meat. If it's a venom-based toxin (mainly delivered through saliva), hard to know if it'd present in the meat, or if cooking it would make it inert. Cooking spoiled meat, in general, doesn't make it palatable. It's pretty clear tainted blood has no effect when splattered all over the body, open wounds, eyes or mouth.
