After a couple hours' effort today locating a stronghold with eyes of ender then building a railway to and tower at the location where the eye entered the ground, I'm a little frustrated. I scoured the stronghold and couldn't find the end portal or even evidence of the end portal room.
When I'm caving or exploring areas like strongholds, I always follow a "left-hand rule" - that is, I follow the wall with my left hand and always place torches on the left. This ensures that I don't miss any passageways and that I can always find my way out by doing the reverse - keeping the torches on my right hand side. Of course, with strongholds and other labrythine areas, it's always possible that the "left-hand rule" will fail to explore every possible passageway; however, I have gone back through the stronghold three times, checking at every intersection that I placed torches down every possible branch. In other words, I don't think it's likely that I missed part of the stronghold.
A significant portion of the stronghold was cut through by a series of caverns. I'm inclined to believe that the cavern destroyed the end portal room upon world generation. Am I correct in assuming this is possible?
I'm also considering the possibility that the end portal room is somehow not attached to the rest of the stronghold due to an artifact of the random stronghold generation algorithm; is this a possibility?
Also, is it possible, using my world seed, to figure out the coordinates where the end portal should have generated? This way I could travel to those coordinates in creative to verify that the end portal does not exist in the stronghold that I discovered.
Are there any other ideas for how to locate the end portal in the stronghold and/or determine whether the end portal room has been destroyed or not?

The stronghold I'm exploring is somewhere around x = 600± and z = -10±
