For an additional visual reminder when building such a multi-pin part, I use
one "dot" (circle) style pin & the rest regular, so the schematic symbol has
a pin going through the circle.

I agree that the junction is not especially pretty. Having said that, it
does provide a visual reminder that the wire is connected to more than one
pin (which would not otherwise be obvious).
