What is the very best way to insulate a section of Rokuhan Z scale track for block control? a plastic connector?

I just leave gaps, but many find that gaps will close if left unfilled with an insulating material. I dehumidify my train room 24/7, so creeping trackwork due to humidity is never a problem for me.
What you might wish to do is to leave or cut a gap, and then to place some styrene in there, or even packaging plastic, the clear stuff that you're afraid will slice your hand open when you use scissors on it. Use a glue to keep it in place, and when the glue sets, try to whittle it into something that looks like rails, and paint it if you figure it needs to be painted.
