A quick solution will be to reconfigure {section} heading since you're
splitting at section level.


An archive, nasser.tar.gz, is attached which has the modified version of
MWE, slightly enhanced version of multicol.4ht and html output generated.

Ideally, using {multicols} environment in each section will provide better
results as the cross-links and headings shall span across columns while the
text alone will be in columns. You can also use \section{<title>} as an
optional argument of \begin{multicols}{2}[...]
