Both of these vocabularies mean "Help", but have different usages...
- 救命 is an interjective phrase for "Save me!", which is commonly used in urgent situations (i.e. emergency)
- 帮助 is used in light-issue situations (i.e. asking for Homework help)
救命！我跌倒了！(Help! I fell down!)
我不可以做完功課，所以需要你幫我忙。 (I cannot finish my Homework, so I need your help.)
