When I've needed to do this for a two-column page, I've drawn a very
short vertical line, centred it in the horizontal direction, and
repeated it in the Y-direction.

Here is a snippet from our FO book and course material:

     <region-body region-name="frame-body"
                  column-count="2" column-gap=".5cm"

So for a three-column page, draw a short graphic with two vertical
lines positioning them in the gaps and use the above properties.

I hope this helps.
