Skype for Business (S4B) optimization using Split tunnellng - https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/lync/Enhance-your-Skype-for-744f17cb/file/178379/1/Enhance%20S...

 

Office 365 URLs and IP address ranges which you need deny on the Split tunnleing policy - https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/urls-and-ip-address-ranges

 

Had some past experiences with poor screen share, changing the screen share protocol to RDP or some other lightweight equivalent (if I recall correctly) had positive effect on the sessions.

Re: Poor Video/Audio skype for business on-prem via vpn

I always prefer for traffic of any cloud-based or internet facing applications to be sent outside the tunnel unless there is a very strong business reason to send it via the tunnel. Especially any bandwidth heavy or real time applications like audio/video. 

 

So if your skype on-prem servers are accessible via internet then send them outside the tunnel, especially right now when everyone is working remote.
