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
