I don't have anything much to add to Daysleeper's advice other than make sure you keep consistent with your training! As your puppy ages, you will likely see a bit of backslide as they test boundaries in their "teenage" phase, and sometimes it might seem like they've forgotten everything you've taught them. This is totally normal, so don't get discouraged if you notice that! Biting and nipping also might increase when they start losing their baby teeth.

As for a young puppy going off in an unfenced area without supervision....no, not a good idea. That's not a good idea for any dog in a suburban setting, actually. You do not want your dog thinking that they can escape their fence. That's a good way to get a dog that looks for escape routes so they can go exploring without you, and if it becomes a bad habit, it's only a matter of time before there's an accident and you lose your dog. The best way to stop bad behaviors is preventing them in the first place.

For now, make sure she's supervised when in your yard and hopefully she'll grow too large to fit through the gap.
