In a nutshell, as I understand it, RUP is the methodology in which software development takes place.  That is, you use RUP to help you determine when you should be modeling and developing, when you should be testing.  UML on the other hand, tells you how two objects interact with each other and their relationships (one to many, many to many, etc).  And then of course there is the piece you didn't mention.  Use Cases.  Use cases is kind of like UML, but from a business perspective.  Use cases are typically very simple, and a high level view of how the program should operate.

Essentially UML is a modeling notation.

RUP is a description of a software development process.

RUP can use UML, but the reverse is not true.
