I’m trying to edit video in Blender. I’m new to this, so sorry if this is a dumb question. Is there a good intermediate format for outputting video from Blender, such as AVCHD or AVI-HD> I need to break some large clips into smaller ones to then be re-imported into Blender for further editing.

DNXHD is a good quality codec for intermediate use. You can crank up the bit rate too.
Make sure that you stick to it’s specified bitrates
+1 on the industry-standard DNxHD format
