on the right. It seems to me that this blank space is due to my using
improperly <div> CSS element. But I can't manage to avoid this blank

The DIV is relatively positioned with top=-450px. Relatively positioned
boxes are treated initially as though they had their default static
positioning, and are shifted *after* the entire page has been laid out.
The shift doesn't alter the layout of the remainder of the page. In
other words, the bottom is where it would have been if you hadn't used
position: relative.
