That's not a gap. We are talking about virtual addresses, like 0x1000 and then 0x3000. This is possible only in Windows 9x. On NT+, addresses must be sequential in memory.
Physical gaps are obviously possible on all of the platforms - you can have sections that contain no physical data, by setting SizeOfRawData to 0, and set the characteristics to non-readable so the region cannot be accessed, but that's not special.
