Splitting the sunnats before zuhr salaah

Q: Suppose I come to the masjid and I have little time before zuhr jamaat to pray the 4 sunnah muakkadah. Can I pray 2 unit rakah before fardh and 2 after fardh so that I can join the jamaat or the 4 units cannot be split?

A: No. All four should be together.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
