If the splits are small leave them alone if they are large enough for the pieces to break they should be shimmed to fill. The mildew may well stop growing once the pieces are dry just wipe it down for now and see if it reoccurs. If it reoccurrs a 10% solution of household belacn in water neutralized with water should kill it. This may also bleach the wood so be careful with it.
