It does, but this generally only happens in katakana/hiragana, not kanji. For example, a small 'tsu' indicates a long consonant. And, the presence of 'u' after anything that ends with 'o' (like 'to' or 'ko') indicates a long 'o'. The same goes for an 'i' after anything that ends with 'e'. I can't put down the exact letters here, but I'm sure you'll be able to find many sources for katakana/hiragana online.

That said, I've never seen any split-up words in any Japanese texts I've seen (admittedly, they're mostly games and manga Wink | ;) ), and there are cases where two or more words are joined together to provide context. So if you're looking for a way to split words up, my suggestion is don't.
