During the turn from 14th to 15th there was 56minute gap in new blocks.
Only reason i noticed was because i was waiting for some transactions to go through.

Does this happen often, i thought it shouldn't? What are the odds of that just happening by chance ... Probably just chance but i would think odds of 1hr with only 1 block mined has quite low odds.

Transactions must be included in a block to be properly completed. When you send a transaction, it is broadcast to miners. Miners can then optionally include it in their next blocks. Miners will be more inclined to include your transaction if it has a transaction fee.

It's just luck. Sometimes blocks come in quick succession, even up to 10+ blocks an hour.  Other times, however, it can drop below what might be expected.

It goes both ways, if we hit streaks where we get close to 12 blocks / hr for a couple of hours, bet on it that there would soon be a duration of >3blocks an hour for a couple of hours.
