Open Word 2016, and right click in blank space in the ribbon. Choose Customize QAT, choose all commands and at the Top of the list is Separator.  

Add a Separator.  I have done this and it works.

I cannot see a way to adjust the size of the separator.

That is and isn't true. You can always add custom icons to your toolbars, it just isn't all that easy or practical.

Here is one in-depth walk-through on how this can be done:

Where the custom icon would be an extra thick spacer image, or you could just put in two spacer separators.

Will custom icons thicken the separator bar?  Not unless the separator bar itself is a custom icon.
