According to this question, both μ's and Aquors are real life groups.

So, I am wondering what other groups that are mentioned in Love Live! School Idol Project and Love Live! Sunshine!! are also based off real life idol groups.

    If I'm not mistaken, ARISE also has a real life group. But they are not active. They formed only for the anime but held no concerts like u's. Jan 16, 2017 at 4:55

In Japan, they are generally called as seiyuu unit (Japanese Wikipedia) when a music/acting unit (group) consists of voice actors. For a special case where a group also works as a real-life idol, it is called seiyuu idol unit.

According to the Wikipedia, there are 3 units, but only 2 are seiyuu idol units:

  • A-RISE (created for Love Live!, no live event/talk)
    • Kira Tsubasa: Sakuragawa Megu
    • Toudou Erena: Matsunaga Maho
    • Yuuki Anju: Ohashi Ayuru
  • μ's (created in 2010 for Love Live!, 6 live events, 4 live talks, 18 guest appearances)

    Not sure if Saint Snow is considered as seiyuu unit or not. It's not mentioned on Wikipedia.
