There are no gaps when converting with other program, for example with FineReader

Those aren't gaps they are just adjusted glyph spacing. PDF consists of a sequence of commands to place individual glyphs (character shapes) at each successive location. When you copy/paste your PDF reader is basically guessing about assembling words and spaces. In this case you PDF reader is guessing wrong.
