Oh, I misunderstood you. That all right and there is no problem, character data can be selected by nodetest "text()".
Try to imagine your xml snippet as xpath data model tree:

element p
  +------ text node " This is my "
  +------ element b
  |             |
  |             +------- text node " bold "
  +------ text node " text. "

so you can select text "This is my" by "p/text()[1]" xpath expression etc.

No, mixed content is a legal form of conent model in xml.
