One of the 3 approaches to calculating GDP is the so-called income approach, which states that total income (distributed as salary/wages, interest payments, and dividends) should equal total output.

Wouldn't total income always fall a little short of total output because companies regularly choose to retain a large share of their earnings rather than distribute all as dividends?
