The lines are split when a field is too long to avoid misalignment.
To avoid this use the -P / --portability format.  Here is the
documentation from the df manual on it.

       Use the POSIX output format.  This is like the default format
       except for the following:

         1. The information about each file system is always printed on
            exactly one line; a mount device is never put on a line by
            itself.  This means that if the mount device name is more
            than 20 characters long (e.g., for some network mounts), the
            columns are misaligned.

         2. The labels in the header output line are changed to conform
            to POSIX.
