How does a dealer properly split?

Lets say you get a pair of 8’s

I see where one completely ignores the left side (still leaving with 1 card of 8) and just keeps hitting until the right side is finished; then they proceed to give the 2nd combination card to the 8 on the left…

Then there’s scenario #2 where the dealer automatically hits both 8’s (so both cards now have a combination) on the left and right – AND THEN they play one by one starting from the right…

Obviously this difference in dealing will make a huge impact on the outcome so which is correct/proper?
