you can just plug into the Left rca input or use a Y adapter and plug into both rca inputs on sub.

I have seen the splitters. Would that degrade sound? What is the benefit of using a splitter vs not

There's no real reason to. Using both left and right inputs will strengthen the input signal, but you can achieve the same thing by simply turning up the gain knob.

Stick the two male ends into LFE and right input, and connect other female end with the sub rca cable

Running two sub cables to feed Left/Right inputs on one sub is simply wastage of resources and money. Run one rca cable from any of the two sub pre outs from avr, and use 1 female to 2 male y-adaptor at the end of it to terminate into Left/Right input on the sub.
