You might be interested in the following two posts (if they don't answer your question already; possible duplicates): How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX?; Keeping tables/figures close to where they are mentioned – Werner Jan 24 '13 at 20:21

since a figure is a floating environment, placing it between \begin{center} ... \end{center} might have an effect you don't want, possibly including the unwanted blank line. (i haven't checked, since there isn't a minimum example to experiment with.)

also, if your document isn't in two columns, the * isn't helpful, since its purpose is to place a full-width float at the top of a two-column page. and if it is a two-column document, the [h] option on the figure isn't relevant.
