I have a document with a series of paragraphs with the same style.

I would like to replace the paragraph marks with line breaks to join the paragraphs having the same style into one.

The reason being, I want to be able to set spacing above and the below the paragraphs when the style changes only.

How do I go about it?

If you're sure you want to do it that way, then it ought to be possible, but in fact there may be another (better) way to go about what you want to achieve.

If you select the paragraphs in question, and use Format > Paragraph, then under Indents & Spacing you'll find an option called (in English!) Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style. If I've understood you correctly, this should give you the result you're looking for.

Note: there's a long-standing bug which means that this option doesn't appear when establishing or modifying a paragraph style, but there are ways to work around this.
