Sources connected with the show tell TMZ ... on Tuesday, after announcing the separation, Bruce went off to shoot scenes with Kylie and Kendall.

TMZ reports the upcoming season will show Bruce and Kris living separately but coming together at various points for family events ... and there will be a lot of them.

What's more ... TMZ is told the family is very conscious of the fact that they can make more in syndication.

And that's why it's called Show Business.
