You can try “Alt+x 2C-two-columns” (shortuct Ctrl+x 6 2). This split a
window into 2 vertical columns. Page up/down one will also page up/
down the other. However, cursor doesn't follow.

related is a Alt+x follow-mode, which is for viewing one long file in
2 verticle frames as if you have a long monitor.

i'm pretty sure what you want is already implemented somewhere.
