Generic / Text only Printer - Printing Commands

I m new to this field and I have thermal printer connected to LPT1. It's installed as "Generic / Text Only" Printer. I have two problems. First is it is printing text and then leave some space blank. Is there any way to stop printing receipt after end of text to avoid blank paper? Second, When I print test page, it cuts after printing. When I print receipt, it does not cut the paper. I use following command in "Printer Command" field. - Begin Print Job - <1B>t<00>, End Print Job - <1B>i. Please help me to resolve this issue. Thanks.
