The number is closer to 720,000.

Battle deaths were grossly under reported during the Civil War for propaganda and morale reasons. 

As for the break fown on North vs. South, I seem to remember the number for the North being around 450,00 and the South around 270,000.  Not sure how accurate those numbers are but they seem plausible.
