For the purposes of scoring, the edges are ignored (Which means, if an empty point is on the edge of the board, it does not change the ownership of the point). If an empty point is adjacent to only white stones, it belongs to white. If an empty point is adjacent to only black stones, it belongs to black. If an empty point is adjacent to both white and black stones, it is neutral territory that belongs to neither.
Here is a video which explains scoring a game under both Chinese and Japanese rules:

I've got an additional question.
It may be obvious but it is written a bit ambiguous imho on
"A player's score is the number of points of her color, plus the number
of empty points that reach only her color."
So an empty point that can reach the border of the board doesn't count,
