Please use the following code example to achieve your requirement. Hope this helps you.

Document doc = new Document(MyDir + "blankpage.docx");
for (int i = 0; i < doc.Sections.Count - 1; i++)
    Section section = doc.Sections[i];
    Section nextsection = doc.Sections[i + 1];
    if (section.Body.LastParagraph.GetText().Contains(ControlChar.PageBreak)
        && nextsection.Body.FirstParagraph.GetText().Contains(ControlChar.PageBreak))
        section.Body.LastParagraph.Range.Replace(ControlChar.PageBreak, "");
        nextsection.Body.FirstParagraph.Range.Replace(ControlChar.PageBreak, "");
doc.Save(MyDir + "20.4.docx");
