I'm trying to retroject Natural Earth's Shapefile of the world (Admin 0 – Countries on this page: https://www.naturalearthdata.com/downloads/10m-cultural-vectors/).

Here's the original Shapefile in QGIS 3.4.1:

Reprojected in Robinson World, centered at Long 0:

All seem good. However, when I try to reproject centred at a different longitude (say Montréal at -73.3), here's what happens:

The polygons aren't sliced at the edge of the new map, and the software is confused as to where polygons start and end.

What's a good way to deal with these problems?

    You have to manually slice the polygons before you can re-project them centered around a different longitude. I couldn't find it, but I know this question has been asked on GIS SE before and has a helpful answer. Try looking for questions with the terms "meridian" and "projection".
