You are an:

INTERACTION

My prefix will lay you to rest
And is also a legitimate prefix

The word 'INTER' means 'bury' or 'lay to rest'. It is also a prefix meaning 'between' as in 'international' ('between nations'), for example.

My infix may be pretence
And is a prefix of my suffix

An 'ACT' may be a pretence, a facade. It is also the first part of the suffix (see below)...

My suffix can be performed
It may relate to moving

An 'ACTION' is something that can be performed (e.g. a movement).

I relate two or more entities;
Objects or even the living

Altogether, these parts make INTERACTION - a word which suggests a relationship between two or more entities, each of which has an effect on the other(s). This could (e.g.) be social interaction (conversation and mingling) or the interaction of an animal with its surroundings...
