How is there a fourth half? That doesn't make any sense mathematically.

Clearly you're not giving it 200%

Also de derde helft is commonly used for the time spent in the sports canteen (usually drinking beer) after playing a football or hockey match (hockey = field hockey in the Netherlands).

I also agree that 'vierde helft' sounds weird. I typed 'vierde gedeelte' but it was incorrect.
