Since you have 4-digit years, would this work better for the break before pattern?

Break on date, set proper time format and time prefix?

Yes, but I don't see your time format definition. And it's definitely wrong since the time in raw event is different than the event time in splunk.

You could set TIME_PREFIX as well.

as you can see, it consider 2 events as one for some reason

I still believe there is something not entirely right with your timestamp recognition. True, in the second screenshot the timestamp "seems" to be right. But.

From the time format you're using, I presume you're somewhere in the US and your local timezone is not GMT. Your event's timestamp is GMT, so...

Anyway, if your logs are reporting time in GMT when they should do in your local time, you have another problem to resolve before you hit some issues with time inconsistency later on.
