Can tasks be assigned to a group instead of single users?

Only if that "group" is a user in Confluence.  You're better off just @mentioning all the people you want on the line with the task so they get notified and can see it in their workbox.  Using a user account as a group also prevents you from getting the benefit of using Confluence as a collaboration tool.  If it's a really big group, share the page with the group and put in a message about the task.

No they cannot. Tasks can only be assigned via the @mention ability, which is limited to actual users.

We are using a workaround for that. Our groups have e-mail adresses which are forwarded to the team members. So we added some group "dummy" user we can @ mention and then the user in that group are beeing notified. Not the most elegant solution but working. And this also makes it possible to share pages with groups.
