Cannot and can not are both acceptable English, but they have different meanings.
"I can not" is stronger form of of "may not". It is possible that I can't, but the the possibility that I can is not excluded.Example: I can or I can not go somewhere.
"I cannot" means that it is impossible. Example: I cannot go anywhere
