    With AD20, Altium has made this a lot easier.

    Select the pad that you want to change the connect style to thermal.
    From properties panel -> Scroll down to the Pad stack section and enable the "Thermal relief" as shown in the attached image.

    You can edit the thermal relief setting by clicking the setting buttons "..." to configure the connects.

      Generally, polygon connect style is controlled by rules, but can be also controlled on pin or polygon level.In your case, maybe have a look also into rules:
