Depending on what version of Maya you have, goto the edit polygon or edit mesh menu and there should be a "keep faces together" option. Make sure it's checked.

As far as your vertexes splitting, not sure what you mean. Try checking your Extrude options box (after you select an edge) to see if the Divisions is set to "1".

P.S. I think these answers are in the newbie forum.

I'll check out the vertex problem on my computer tonight. But, hopefully someone will post an answer by then. I won't get home for another 9 hours.

When Extruding Multiple Faces , always ensure you have the Keep Faces Together Option turned on. The issue above shows this off quite well.

Click Polygons > Tool Options > Keep Faces Together

Once you have done that, when you extract multiple polygons these "ridges" will not be there.

I went home on my lunch break but could not duplicate the vertex problem. Is there any chance you were extruding an edge on a face that you previously extruded, before you selected keep faces together. If so, then perhaps that's where the extra vertices came from.

Just for kicks and grins, create a polygon box. Select an edge and extrude it. Then check to see if the vertices are still multiplying on you. If not, then it may have just been from the extra unwanted faces created earlier.
