When I try to delete a node in a space, by pressing DEL, the closed-shape it gets broken (not-continous anymore).

How can I remove point from these without breaking them?

Note: I used Illustrator CS6, is this makes a difference.

Under the pen tool in the menu bar there is a tool called delete anchor points. You can also access this with the shortcut key - (minus). It allows you to remove anchor points without breaking the shape enter image description here
