Another point I noticed is setting linewidth to 0 (in fill_between
function) isn't working as expected when figure is saved as a PDF file.

Actually, this is not a bug in mpl. It is a "bug" in various viewers.
Some viewers have a "minimum" linewidth and will use that for any requested
linewidths smaller than that. Are you using Apple's Preview?

That's correct as per the pdf specification: a linewidth of zero means
the thinnest possible line on that device. That's why the pdf backend
attempts to not draw a line if the width is set to zero, but somehow
it's not working in this case. I'd call it a bug.
