Cinder provides a backup service with different backends. This backs up existing volumes but can it do live backups of volumes attached to a running Nova VM? I could not find an answer to this in the docs...

Yes. You need to force-backup the volume, see e.g. the CLI documentation.

Backend support for this feature is required. The NFS backend used to not support it, for example (not sure about the current status).
