PDF italics yeilds line breaks

I have a book only in PDF format, and not available to buy a better version. I'm using Calibre 0.8.34 to convert it to mobi for a kindle. Is there any setting or fix I can apply to prevent italicized words in the pdf from generating spurious line breaks and incorrect word breaks too? I tried outputting the DEBUG info, and the problem begins in the input section and has worsened by the parse section. See pics for examples of extra line breaks being inserted, and also for some italicized sections grabbing part of the neighboring word too.
