There isn't blank space between the plots. There is blank space around
each plot. The amount of space around each plot is controlled by par(mar),
which specifies the number of lines of space on each side of the plotting

The default is
> par("mar")
[1] 5.1 4.1 4.1 2.1
and if you do, say,
you will have much less blank space.  You need to make sure enough space
is left for axis label &c.
