Once you have the information you need in a legend you can right click -> Convert to Graphics. You'll have to un-group the items, but you have total control over the layout. Keep in mind that after converting to graphics your legend will no longer auto-update based on changes in layer symbology. – Roy Jul 31 '13 at 20:22

If you are trying to get more space between columns: column gap.
If the item is not already split into 2 columns, you can do this in the Items tab.
