That isn't official. It doesn't mention Bucky, anyway.
Bucky falls off the train in a mission to grab Zola. When they get Zola back to HQ, he talks to Col. Philips, who debriefs the Commandos that Schmidt's offensive will launch in twenty-four hours.
That, at most, is two, three days between Bucky and Cap going MIA.
As for the modern day. I don't see any sources for why The Avengers is a year after Cap is found.
