I have the following MATLAB code:
histogram(degree(G1),'Normalization','probability')
And I would like to add a space between each bar of the histogram, with x axis of the graph being integer numbers.

Sounds like you're describing a bar plot rather than a histrogram. See histogram > Name-Value inputs > Normalization > probability to learn how to normalize the inputs for the bar inputs.
If you get stuck, show us where you're at and we can help you get unstuck. If a bar plot is not what yo're looking for, some additional details may be helpful.

Yep, definitely want to use a bar plot and that does not require your data to be categorical. Why can't you use bar?

Use histcounts(), which does not plot, rather than histogram (which does plot), and then use bar(counts, widthFraction) to plot
counts = histcounts(data);
bar(counts, 0.4); % Duty cycle of 40% for the bars gives a big space between the bars.
grid on;
