This is called file chaptering and it's a normal function of all GoPro camera's.  It's done to protect your files in the event of data or powerloss.  If the GoPro only recorded 1 single file, any data or power loss could result in losing the entire recording.  By splitting the files the chances of complete loss are greatly reduced and file recovery options are also increased.

@darbellay, what's happening is called File Chaptering in GoPro cameras. When taking a video recording, the camera will automatically segment into a new file chapter once it has reached a certain size.

This chaptering is intentional so in the event of a jolt or crash that causes a file to become corrupted, only a portion of your video will be affected and not the whole thing.

 

These files when put together with editing software will play seamlessly as if they were never chaptered, and when played back from the camera directly will also play through as one continuation.

You can use a simple drag and drop video editor to join the files into one long video, that's all you have to do, nothing more.

I've used other video cameras and have noticed that many of them also perform file chaptering. So, it's not just GoPro cameras.
