A: @Grat: no, it's not the same thing as "doing the time", because that means prison time. And it's not a correct expression either. You might hear someone say it like that, and in this case "doing a gap year" is used like "doing a student exchange" or "doing a grad trip", that kind of thing.
Doing a gap year = doing whatever a gap year requires to do = taking a gap year. Hope that helps 😃

A: "The difference between the winter and summer weather in this country is huge!" is far more natural. This way you are implying hot and cold through saying the seasons.

If you wanted to use hot and cold specifically you could say:
"The difference between the heat of the summer and cold of the winter is huge in this country!" but this sounds a little awkward.

Or to change the original sentence a little:
"The difference between the warmth and cold in a year is huge in this country!". It's not the most natural, but your meaning would be understood.
