Well when we're talking "Linux" as the Linux Kernel itself here are some points that makes significant differences.
The Linux Kernel itself is monolithic. Unix can be monolithic or a microkernel or even both of this called hybrid.
Linux can use Kernelmoduls which is quiet flexible. Unix on the other hand uses static linking.
There is a difference in how processes are managed on the too, but i don't go into details here.
Linux is available on a lot of architechtures. Unix supports a few but not quiet as much.
Linux is way more "chaning" over the time, where Unixs interfaces usually don't change at all.
And one of the main differences: Linux is fully open source software
