If its 14 then it splits it to 7&7, but how about 13 characters? 7&6?

How does it work?

The password is padded with null bytes: extra bytes of value 0x00 are appended so that the total length is exactly 14 bytes. See this, item 4.

Of course, LM hash is a very poor password hashing algorithm. Don't use it (if you have the choice).
