It shouldn't. The whitespace in case of the center environment is caused by

 You may do it yourself by entering in an ERT frame

Better use \centering, because the center environment adds extra whitespace

 odt generated, the equation does not appear properly.

 There are problems doing this on many Windows installs, due to issues
 with tex4ht under Windows. Some people have occasionally gotten it to
 work, but, well, don't bank on it.

Could you try the following command instead of oolatex?

htlatex file 'xhtml,ooffice' 'ooffice/! -cmozhtf' '-coo' '-cvalidate'

That is, in Preferences-Converters (for LaTeX-OpenDocument):

htlatex $$i 'xhtml,ooffice' 'ooffice/! -cmozhtf' '-coo' '-cvalidate'
