My baby is just 20 days old. While he born the weight is 2.8 kg. Now he gained nearly 400g. Tis is good or I have to reduce my feeding?

It is all fine. If his digestion is ok.weight gain is normal
In the first 10 days babies will lose upto 10% of birth weight and thereafter they should gain 30- 50 grams per day if growth is fine, This way you can work out and this rate of growth is in first 3 months and then changes.
