  3. First of all, all code must be pasted into the so-called Text editor, not into the Visual editor.
    Then you must make the image mapping apply to the image above; you turn this:
    <img ETC ETC
    to this:
    <img usemap="#imgmap2013122917347" ETC ETC

    But!
    a) Image mapping works by setting coordinates: points at fixed distances from the top and the left edge of the image. The image you used to create the code is 1087px long, but the version inserted into your post is scaled down to 474px (because that's the maximum that can fit in the main column of the theme), so the original coordinates are now way off the mark. If the theme had a fixed width, you should use a 474px wide image to create the code.
    b) Unfortunately the theme is 'responsive': it shrinks to adapt to different screen resolutions and mobile devices. So, even if you use a 474px image, the links will again be dislocated when your blog is viewed in a narrow device.
    In short, on themes like 2014 you can't do what you were looking for.
