you cannot group regions in that way.
vertically, you could group tracks in an edit group, so that any action 
performed on one track is mirrored on the other.

for your particular example, there is a workaround:
arrange the two regions with the correct gap, then mark a range that 
includes both regions and consolidate this range. you end up with a new 
single region with 60s silence in it, and then you continue from there.

hope that helps,
