How about:

use "Online backup" or "Hot backup" to refer to either method of back  
since they are both done while the system is online or hot.

If you want to get specific refer to doing a "sql dump" etc for using  
pg_dump
Then use "Incremental backup" to refer to  the whole process of the  
WAL archival etc
Refer to the actual log files themselves as transaction logs.

That all seems to be pretty intuitive and non-ambiguous non-confusing  
to me.
