Why are the leaves on my Monstera Peru becoming patchy and mottled?

Monstera can be prone to spider mites who will zap nutrients from the foliage. Check the underside of leaves for spider mites and try to increase the humidity which help avoid spider mites.

My Monstera Peru is growing longer but there's large gaps between the leaves, why is this?

This may be as a result of poor light which has allowed growthy to become leggy. You can cut the plant and propagate the new growth in order to avoid distorted or leggy growth.
