Nope, they are entitled to generate the same number of blocks, even if it's possible they may miss some due to technical issues.

  • will be gaining more rewards when creating a block than the others?

Sort of: although they'll get the same block rewards, they'll get more vote rewards.

Dan's explanation here:

There are 21 active block producers and any number of standby producers. The top 21 divide up the 0.25% per-block rewards proportional to the number of blocks each one producers. All block producer candidates (including the top 21) also divide up the .75% per-vote rewards budget proportional to the total number of votes they receive. They can claim their share of the per-vote rewards at most once-per-day. In order to claim their share they must qualify for at least 100 tokens/day. Producers candidates who do not qualify for at least 100 tokens/day on a per-vote basis will receive nothing.
