In my homeplace (Uden-Netherlands) there are a certain number of buildings that contain 2 (or more) houses, where one house has been given another streetname than the other house(s). How do I solve this problem? The block of houses is always on a corner of two streets.

In this case, you should use one node for each address. Multiple nodes can be placed inside one building outline. It's best to offset them so they're easier to see. I don't think there's any need to split the building if it is all one structure.

Even better, you could add the entrances to the building (entrance=yes) and add all the address tags to the corresponding entrance nodes.

Hi since you’re living and mapping in the Netherlands (Uden) please follow the import of the BAG definitions. Or take a look at the BAG viewer for detailed info about the right place of the addresses of the individual apartments. Split the building by adding two nodes at that spot and use the scissor to cut the way, ad two ways in between and ad the addresses.
