I agree with the earlier answer, but I had the same question! So if it can help, I found an interesting information at Chinese Grammar Wiki's list of separable verbs and especially at “Separable Verbs” – A Misleading and Unnecessary Concept.


separate verb? In modern Chinese grammar they are called 动宾短语(a phrase with structure of verb + objective). It's a huge group and I don't believe anyone can give you a complete list. 吃饭 睡觉 走路 洗脸 刷牙 喝水 打球 泡妞 修车 骑马 射箭 any more you want? I can give you even a longer list


For your purpose, instead of learning from a huge list of word pairs, you can use OpenCC. It allows you to convert between simplified and traditional Chinese. One big advantage of learning with this tool is that you can also learn different word-choices among the Chinese-speaking communities, e.g. Taiwan, Hong Kong, Mainland China.
