Can I split my IRA account into two accounts and only withdraw from one account or is the amount calculated on the total IRA accounts value?

I thought about taking $500k and putting it into another IRA account. Then taking withdrawals based on the original account with a balance of $700k using the 120% method. This way if I take it out too fast I have another account as backup. Or both accounts grow fast, I could start withdrawals later on the second account when I felt like it.
