Comment 3 NISZ LibreOffice Team 2020-05-15 16:36:12 UTC
The text in the frame has several paragraphs and they have different paragraph styles set. This seems to be the basis of breaking up the frame, a very interesting solution to handle the situation.

Setting the frames paragraphs to the same style in Word makes the frame split go away in Word. 
Then it is possible to set different paragraph styles to the frames paragraphs and to export that as one frame to docx which then stays one frame after reopen both in Word and Writer.
