You are correct you have a few 3 sided tris it why you are getting the look you are on the sub-ds.

I havnt used maya for a long time but I think you could use the append to polygon tool, you basically click on the edges and it will "fill the hole" lol

Then you can use use the split poly tool to create the 4 sides that you need.
