This question already has an answer here:
When creating objects for a game engine (unity) or in general I often come across a choice. I can make a face of my object be the way on the left or join the faces and have them as such on the right. Is the way on the right valid? Does it lead to any errors?
If it is wrong, why is it wrong and what are the consequences?
This is more of a modelling question, not specific to blender.
