Large files: parts have different formatting, hard page break

I'm converting some large html files to epubs. Ebook-convert apparently cannot handle these files as one chunk and I see:

Splitting markup on page breaks and flow limits, if any
Looking for large trees in <file>
No large trees found
Split into <x> parts

The number of parts can be as many as 10.
PROBLEM: In the epub output file, there are now hard page breaks (roughly corresponding to every 1/xth of the file) and the text commences at the top of a new page.
How can I avoid the insertion of the hard break?

AND: Worse yet, the font size changes across this boundary!!

I am using a font size directive at the top of the file, in an attempt to meld the four parts of each file into a coherent single text. And not succeeding.

I presume that each part is starting with some default configuration. Where would that be set and how can I revised those defaults?
