It looks like most of your problems are in the source word file. You have words run together without spaces between. Running spellchecker might find some of them for you. GIGO (Garbage in equals Garbage out)

Put spaces after each period and question mark. Do not use the return key at the end of each line, only at the end of the paragraph. A word processor is not a typewriter. It is not related to the mobi format. You would have this problem in any eBook format.

Perhaps you need a more robust automatic solution. I would suggest Atlantis word processor. It will accept your word file and will generate an ePub and a mobi file directly from the program interface if KindleGen is installed as documented. It will give you an easy work flow and should solve all of your problems I hope. You use Atlantis instead of word if you like as it will create interchangeable word files.
