Yes, you can enter in a credit card payment in your checking account with as many splits as you want. However, I think most people would set up their credit card as a separate account and enter all of their transactions in that register. That usually is quicker, and keeps one's data more accurate in a few ways, like entering in the actual purchase dates for transactions (everything will just be under the one payment date in your proposed method). You also won't be able to download any transaction data into your credit card account unless it is setup as a separate account, meaning you'll always have to manually enter everything.
I'm not quite sure what you mean by "i am not able to access the list of my categories as credit card sub categories." In general, there are not separate categories based on account, if that's what you mean. For example, you would want spending on groceries to always be in the same Groceries account, regardless of if you made the purchase from your credit card, debit card, cash, or any other source. Let me know if I'm not understanding what you mean.
